Rotating text in a table cell

You can rotate text in a table cell by 90 or 270 degrees. Text rotation is useful when you have long headings for narrow columns.

  • Select the text to be rotated and then click Format > Character.
  • On the Position page, in the Rotation / scaling section, choose the rotation angle and click OK.

Below is a sample table with rotated headings.
