Layout coordination input

I've encountered a very strange thing in the Layout environmnet in one of the older AC22-files that I'm supposed to work on. When on a layout or a master, the polar coordination input is not working correctly.

 

For example, moving/copying object 10mm in x-direction and 0 in y-direction moves/copies the object in about 33 degrees angle(!). Is that some weird setting that someone has done in the file and if so, how do i revert it? Even the dimensions in the layout space are acting like this...

Okay, I've just found out what the problem was. Someone has set up a Rotated Grid. I didn't think someone would ever need to do that on a Layout...

Do you have the rotated grid turned on rather than the orthoganal (square) one?
