    Inverting text (2000)

    We want to make "table tents" with the same message on each side, so we need a way to flip the text upside down on the lower half of the page - is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Larry

    This was in one of Woody's subscriptions, however, I do not remember which one. I just took the steps and put them in this document. Hope this helps.

    I think there's an archive on this somewhere, but I can think of at least two approaches: (1) convert your text to a drawing and rotate it, or (2) if you have a printer that will do multiple pages per sheet then you can game the printout to get what you want. ... wait here it is: "WOW #8.30 - Rotating text anywhere in a document" (recommended solution: use Excel and embed it.)

    Larry,

    if you don't have enough ways of doing this, here's one more that I got from somewhere a long time ago:
    ====
    You can use text boxes to accomplish this task:

    - Use a Landscape page ****IMPORTANT
    - Create a text box and change the Text Direction to 270
