Another Formating Mystery

Hi, I can change text direction if I put text into a text box but not in a plain document. Is there a way to enable the text direction icon? Cheers, Bill

Are you talking about MS Word or some other program? As you discovered, you can only rotate text if it is in a text box, so to enable the text direction icon I guess you have to put the text in a text box.

If you want more control over text, use a DTP program like Serif Page Plus, which is inexpensive. You can download a completely free unlimited (though out-of-date) version from click here.

Thanks Pesala, I never thought about using a paint program. I have Paint Shop Pro. and it worked just as I wanted it. Cheers, Bill
