    Invert one letter in a line of text (Word 2003)

    I'm trying to flip/invert one letter in a line of text - actually a name - in a document. It is only in the header, not throughout the document. I've tried Word Art, Paint, and Text boxes - HELP! I'm going blind!

    Do you mean rotate by 180 degrees or mirror it? Word doesn't let you do that to text in a document. You'd have to create the letter in a graphics program such as Paint and rotate or mirror it there, then copy and paste as a graphic element into Word.

    I tried that with little success. I can't seem to get it to match font size. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

    Thanks!

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish, and why?

    It might be easiest if you can find a font that matches your needs. (Easiest but not necessarily least expensive...)

    It's a header for a one-off newsletter for a summer program within the company. I'm beginning to think it's not worth all the time I've already spent looking for an answer, though many of the options I've been given are good. However, I just need one letter, and most of these options other than the Paint one, are for an entire word.

    If you tell us which letter it concerns, and whether you want to rotate or mirror it, someone might come up with an alternative suggestion.

    <hr>However, I just need one letter...<hr>
    Th "flip" page replaces an individual letter with another one using a new Unicode value and when pasted into word it renders in the Lucida Sans Unicode font. So you can just grab one letter and see how it looks. Perhaps the limited supply of Unicode fonts will make it impractical for your needs.
