Rotate a page in Word?

Guest

Can I rotate a page in Word? If I change the page setup from landscape to
portrait, it changes the page only, but not its content. Is there a way to
rotate a page including text.? If not, can I rotate a text box?

When you change a page to landscape, the content *is* rotated; it's just not
displayed rotated on the screen (it would be pretty hard to type if it
were).

Text in tables, text boxes, and frames can be rotated 90 degrees clockwise
or counter-clockwise.

My problem is that I'm working with a binder spine template that shows two
spine inserts which are horizontal (in landscape). And you are right, it is
pretty hard to type because I;ve to type "from bottom to top" rather then
"from left to right".
That's why I wanted to rotate the page so that it would basically have to
columns and I could type the normal way.

Two separate documents. If you were using Publisher, you could have done it
in one. ;-)

Sorry, not whether I understand what you're sugesting. Two documents?
Publisher?
How can I rotate a text box?

Publisher is MS's desktop publishing program. It's made to do stuff like
rotating text boxes and putting graphics anywhere you want them and being
creative.

Word is great for word-processing but it's limited in the artsy-fartsy
field. (Shoot me - that's my opinion.)
