Hello all:
I am doing an advertising single page flyer (landscape format).

At the bottom of the page, I would like to have my phone number ,listed vertically,
with room between the text so that I can cut them up in strips and the person interested in the ad can rip if off an take it with them.

(I'm sure you've seen these ads in supermarkets, l ibraries, etc).

How do I do that with writer?

Thanks for your help.

Sharla Cool

Format > Page Landscape

Type some text that would be horizontal

Insert > Section ... press Insert (accept the defaults

You;ll see two thin lines on screen and your cursor should be below them.

Insert Table (one row, maybe 20 columns)

Put your cursor in one of the table cells

Format > Character >Position ...90 degrees (or 270). press Ok.

Type one number. Fiddle with font size, bold etc.

then copy/;paste to the others.

I think that is it, or close.

Don't forget to save as odt and export pdf.
