Changing Text Direction

The alignment window also provides a facility for changing the direction in which text is displayed in a cell, this enables you to label your columns vertically if you wish.  First, enter the text in the cell and then click on the Format drop-down menu and choose Cells.  Click on the Alignment section and set the Orientation settings to either rotate your text through an angle or make it display vertically downwards.  The examples in Figure 25 show the two different ways of rotating text vertically.
