    Word 2007


    Afternoon every one.
    I am using Windows 8 with Microsoft 2007.
    I have Word on the monitor with a paragraph in a text box. I want to turn the text box and paragraph upside down, that is 180deg. No problem turning 90deg but 180 seems to be a no no.
    Any one help me with this one please arram

    You can try to copy the text, then chose "paste special"and chose picture. Then you should be able to rotate the text.

    Word 2007 won't let you directly flip a text box upside down, or 180 degrees. By copying and using the "paste special" as a picture you can then rotate to whatever orientation you would like. It is a workaround, in Word 2010 you can rotate a text box however you like.

    Six year old apps on a new OS? Not slamming you. I do it myself. I just don't expect much when I do it. Good luck regardless.
    Kind of becomes a contest for me. It's why I love DosBox and VMWare Player.
