    print text upside down? (03 SP2)

    I want to print a two page document where the text on the last 1/4 of the second is upside down.

    I want to avoid running the paper through the printer twice. Can the orientation of the text be turned upside down?

    - Insert a next page section break at the end of the first page.
    - Set the page orientation of the second section (=page in this case) to the opposite of that of the first section, i.e. if the first section is Portrait, set the second to Landscape and vice versa.
    - Insert a table with one row, two columns on the second page.
    - Enter or copy/paste the text for the first 3/4 of the page into the left hand cell.
    - Enter or copy/paste the text for the last 1/4 of the page into the right hand cell.
    - Use Format | Text Direction... to rotate the text in the left hand cell 90 degrees to the left.
    - Use Format | Text Direction... to rotate the text in the right hand cell 90 degrees to the right.
    - Adjust the size of the cells to suit your purpose.
    - Use the Format | Borders and Shading dialog to remove all borders from the table.

    Thanks. This did exactly what we needed it to do.
