I'm trying to get 'stacked' text in Word 2007. I can achieve this in Excel 2007(Text Box/Format Shape/Text Box/Text Direction=Stacked) and then Paste result but is there a way of doing it in Word without all that bother?
Thanks for that. Unfortunately neither do what I require. I'm trying to achieve something that looks like a title on a book spline, the Equation editor only works on a single line and the second method, whilst achieving what I want, means I have to have a text box for each letter. So far it's easier to Paste from Excel.
It's not vertical text I want, it's stacked text. Vertical text you have to turn your head 90deg to read. Stacked text has each letter above each other but the correct way up.
Bet that doesn't look right when I post.
Sorry mate, seem to be missing something here. If I follow the instructions in your link there are only three Text direction options; Horizontal (as this is displayed), Rotated 90deg right and reading downwards from the top right hand corner of page or rotated 90deg left and reading upwards from bottom left hand corner of page. What I'm after is each letter horizontal, each letter below the previous one and reading from top of page downwards.
No, not tables or columns. If you have Excel 2007 try(Text Box/Format Shape/Text Box/Text Direction=Stacked) and you'll see what I mean. It formats the text easily and quickly, in a text box, to look like the "LIKE THIS" in my post of 9.27pm. You do achieve the same effect by pressing the "Return" after each letter but then you get tracking/kerning/spacing problems.
