Hi
My problem:
Usually a line with all alphabets are printed from Left to Right with A - Z.

I want to print a page with A-Z,
but A character in the top (rotated 90 degree) and Z character on the bottom of the page (also rotated 90 degree).

Is it possible to create such document using OO write?
Thank you.

If you only need that text rotated, and the rest of the page normal, you can use the draw tools in the left toolbar in order to insert a text box, and then change its properties to be rotated in the angle you want.

What am I missing please? Can you not just type it that way?

A
B
C
...

If text orientation is necessary, then can not the page be printed with landscape orientation? ... Or do you want some mixed text on a single page, some in one orientation and some in another? One approach to that is to create two pages, one for each section, and print twice on the same sheet.

Type "ZYX...A" then format the characters for rotation 90 degreas.

Neat! I really have to decide to spend a day or two really looking at the options in this suite.

Hello ftack,
Is the way to accomplish this is by format characters?
If it is then I have some problem (please see this thread: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=53826#53826).

Shouldn't be a problem. I have used this feature alot over the last couple years.

You could also use draw or impress to do this as well.
