I apologise for returning to this subject, but I wonder whether, in the year since it was last raised, anyone has come up with a good solution to the problem I will attempt to describe, for Word/XP?
Let us assume we have a sheet of card, either A4 or US Letter size, and we fold it in half to make the "Name Card" we all have to fill out and put in front of us when we go to courses, with our own name and our company name visible on each side, as in
It's a bit big, but, hey, our company is rich enough to afford a whole sheet of card per person!
How can we cause this to print in Word/XP? One way would be in Portrait mode to do a table with one column and two rows, and in the lower of the two cells put the text as described above -- but how do we write the same text, <font color=blue>inverted</font color=blue>, in the upper cell, so that when the resulting printed card is folded it can be read correctly from either side? There seems to be no option in Format => Text Direction to rotate text through 180 degrees, just through +90 degrees or -90 degrees.
Those sneaky persons among you will ask, why not reorientate the page to give Landscape, and then rotate the text in what is now the left-hand cell through +90 degrees, and the text in what is now the right-hand cell through -90 degrees? Yes, it works (and I love the way the lines in the "Justification" icons also change direction!), but surely there should be a simpler mechanism that would work in Portrait mode -- without having to resort to WordArt?
