    Printing Transposed (upside down) on the same page (Word 2003)

    Is there a way, (and I may need to do this in publisher but like word), of Printing a text box in the regular fashion on the bottom of the page and also place a transposed text box at the top of the page, so that i can fold the paper in 1/2 and people can read the text correctly whether they are trying to read the folded card facing me or from their side. I did this as a graphic but would prefer as a text box. See photo
    Thanks

    See the thread about 'Table Tents' starting at <post:=298,575>post 298,575</post:>. The solution is to create a 1 row/2 columns table on a landcape page, and use Format | Text Direction to rotate the text in the cell on the left 90 degrees to the right, and in the cell on the right 90 degrees to the left.

    Many thanks, works, but it creates a problem for mixed graphics unless you can put graphics in a cell to and rotate it

    Inline graphics cannot be rotated. You have two options:
    1) Change the graphic to a floating graphic (in the Layout tab of Format | Picture...). You'll then see a line with a green circle at the top of the picture: the rotate handle; use this to rotate the picture.
    or
    2) Rotate the picture in any graphics program, then reinsert it in your document.
