Rotate numbers in a vertical cell

Postby FirstVampire » Tue Apr 14, 2020 12:45 am

Watched a Youtube video on how to create a flyer with tear off phone numbers at the bottom. I have the text in the main body and created vertical cells on the bottom for the phone numbers. But, when I put in the phone number it is horizontal not vertical. I clicked on the right-to left (Vertical) option, but, the numbers still come out horizontal. What am I not doing right? Or is there a way to rotate the numbers once they are in the cell? I'm pulling, what hair I have left, out trying to figure this out. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.
PS In the video when the person inputs the number into the cell they are vertical. PLEASE HELP.

Try Format -> Cells (Ctrl+1) -> Alignment
Under Text Orientation try 90 or 270 Degrees and/or Vertically stacked
When entering the information it will appear horizontal, but upon moving to a different cell or pressing Enter the orientation will change as I think you want it, with one of the above mentioned options.

Just use one (or more) custom paragraph style/s/. See my sample file and the style named "Rotated". See the properties of the Font, Position, and the Alignment group in the Style.
