    Rotating Text Box (XP)

    I would like the text in a rotated textbox to also rotate with the box. The text remains at 180 degrees.

    I have attached a sample workbook.

    Regards,
    John

    Option 1:
    - Rotate the rectangle (it's not a text box) back to its original orientation.
    - Cut the rectangle to the clipboard (Edit | Cut)
    - Select Edit | Paste Special...
    - Select one of the Picture options.
    - Click OK.

    Option 2:
    - Use a WordArt object instead of a rectangle (there's a WordArt button on the Drawing toolbar).

    Hans,

    Thanks for the suggestion: It works.

    It's a rectangle not a textbox. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Jerry - I am not familiar with Word Art but will certainly give it a try...

    Thanks again,
    John

    Hi John

    Not a problem, I have used the Word Art solution to rotate text on a number of occasions for my configuration files as an instruction to users. As the instructions vary from time to time , it was just a quick way to adjust the text if need be quickly. Hans' answer is quite eloquent.

    Have a look at the Word Art toolbar , it has its uses, especially in Word.
