Is it possible to put a vertical form field (90' text) on a cell in writer? I've tried but rotation appears unavaliable.

Thanks in advance

I show using a Frame as the container for the text, but that should not affect your desire for vertical text, as the option for that lies within the character styling.


  1. Insert a Frame
  2. Place the cursor within the Frame
    (the most difficult bit, and damn fiddly)
  3. Enter some text
  4. Select the text, then:
    (90° ⇒ bottom2top)
    (270° ⇒ top2bottom)
  5. Press OK
