Default How do I rotate text 180 degrees, so it's completely upside down?

I need to rotate text on a page so it appears upside-down, so that the page
is "tumbled," with one side normal, and the backside upside-down...can I do
this with text (not graphics or clip art)?

Print one side of the page, turn the paper over and print the other!

Actually, if your printer duplexes, you should have a setting in the printer
Properties to choose whether the paper is flipped on the long or short edge.
You want the short edge if this is a portrait document.

If you have the right version of Office then close Word and open Publisher.
All your requirements are available with ease in there.

You can't rotate text 180 but you can rotate 90 in both directions
(effectively giving you 180).

You need to use either a table or a text box. Both of these have a "Text
Direction" option which allows one to have text arrayed down the page facing
left or right. To have it facing up and down, just rotate your page!

BUT, if you want to see a bug in Word (all versions), try the following:

Create a new landscape document. Use either the table method or the text-box
method for creating a tent card with rotated text on both sides of the tent.

With the text-box method, placing any graphic on the page makes the text
boxes disappear. With the table method bitmaps can be placed (using "above
text") but graphics elements (e.g. lines) cannot be placed without moving
other graphic elemnents or the text in the cells - even if they are set to
wrap "above text".

That doesn't work so well with color printers if you are using cardstock.
Then you get colors dragged across.

That would be a limitation of the printer and/or the use of 'one sided' card
stock and nothing to do with Word per se.

I have a similar situation, and a text box or a table just won't do enough.
I have a mass-mailing with a fold-out mailer that comes to a point on one
end (like the flap of an envelope). I can't tell my printers to feel
backwards. I need to print the addresses from a merge file rotated 180
degrees. What can I do? TIA

You could try using a unicode converting website that gives you the
unicode equivalent of text that makes the text look upside down (aka
flipped 180 degrees). One such site is 'flip text'
(http://www.upsidedowntext.com/) but a google search will yield many
more sites too.... in general these sites work better for lowercase
letters but give it a try and see if this works for you.

Word really is not equipped to do anything of this nature. For a one-off
document you may be able to force something but for merge purposes I think
you'd be asking the impossible. You'd do best to consider using MS Publisher
or other page layout program that supports mail merge *and* something other
than in-line text.

This was working somehow, now I cant do it. There is an option on the print menu "rotate 180 degres", but at the moment it does ... pfft ... nothing
