Hello,
I need to type the text not horizontally, but verically, for example:

Y
o
u

d
o
n'
t

k
n
o
w

etc. to teach a student how to read a vertical text. I have the text, but typing the whole paragraph vertically manually -- I will go nuts ! There must be something Microsoft Office can do, like highlightening the horizontal text and change it to horizontal. Could anyone help me with this ?

The only way i know how to do it is by putting the text in a table or text box and using change text direction

I've been experimenting and it looks like "columns" would work the best, but they allow to use 13 max. Still it is better than nothing. Perhaps, I should try Excel.
Thanks for helping me.
