    Text Direction Upside Down? (Word 2000)

    I do a monthly newsletter for a group that has grown so large I need to move to an 11 x 17 format. Does anyone know how (or if it is even possible?) to print with the text direction upside down? I need to do this so that when it is folded, all text will be in the right direction for reading . . .

    Thank you.

    How about changing to 17 x 11 format and insert a 1 x 2 table.
    Enter required text into both cells, then format left cell to read up and right cell to read down (or whichever).

    Word does not allow printing upside down with Text Direction; you can print right side up or sideways, but not upside down. I have no idea how to put the text in a table upside down! Can you tell me?

    Hi Mary:

    You can't print upside down, but you can accomplish the same thing. Follow Leif's suggestion. If you switch your margins, 1/2 of the page can be printed facing left & the other half facing right. This is equivalent to right side up & upside down...except you get dizzy <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>.

    Hope this helps.

    I've attached a quick example of what I mean. The size and proportions are a bit rough so you may need to adjust them if you want to use it. (I'm on metric here!)
    I have actually used three cells - the centre one can act as a 'gutter' for the fold - and left the borders on so you can see what is happening
