I assume you left out the crucial word "can't" in there somewhere Wink
From comments under bug 65708:

Vertical text is a feature for asian languages therefor it is only available
when under tools/options/languages "enable for asian languages" is checked.

Maybe what you want is rotated text. Just make a normal text object, then either use the rotation tool (under the "Effects" toolbar item) for free rotation, or use the Rotation tab in the "Size and Position" dialog to set an exact rotation.
If you really want
V
E
R
T
I
C
A

text, well then, you're on your own Wink

In Roblimo's Book, Point & Click OpenOffice.org, it says in page 81, "You can type vertical text as well. This button is available on the Drawing Toolbar.".. Page 81..

Anyone know about this?

Thanks,
Jim

hi folks,

I wanted to write in classical Mongolian (chinese minority language and script) which is written vertically, the column order is from left to right.

In Vista there's an IME for this script, there are some fonts which support it
I downloaded OO 3.0.1
I activated the complex script and the asian support

In the page style setup I have only three options:
horizontal left to right
horizontal right to left (for arabic, persian, hebrew)
vertical right to left

What I am missing is this:
vertical left to right

that means "ine breaking" is wrong because it goes to the wrong direction.

Languates which make use of it:
mongolian script
Yi script
classical chinese

The headlines of classical chinese are written from right to left, the written text is vertically.
So how can I activate this?

The only way to get around of it is to define a table where the table borders are set to invisible. I write each column in an extra table cell.
