How can I type a vertical text box

I am writing a cover in Draw and want a central spine with vertical lettering

You should activate support for Asian and Complex text layouts languages in dialogue Options (Tools->Options).

Then in Draw on Drawing toolbar you should make visible icon “Vertical text” (right click on any icon on toolbar and select Visible buttons in context menu, see image bottom)

And then use this tool from Drawing toolbar

Thanks for this. I’ll check it out. Robert
