Default Rotating text in a Text Box

Good afternoon. I inserted a bracketed built-in text box, and would like it
to appear along the left edge of the paper. I can rotate the text box, but
the text stays in its original position - how do I rotate the text so it
reads from bottom to top instead of left to right?

Use the Text Direction command.
