C. Taylor reports:
"If you wish to make diagonal text in Microsoft Word, the text should reside in a text box or as a separate WordArt object. Creating these text formats allows you to rotate the text without altering the rest of your document. WordArt is better when you desire a dramatic, graphical display of text. Text boxes are better when you want the text to have a normal appearance. Most text boxes have a border, but this border can be deleted for seamless integration within your other text...Click the Insert tab in Microsoft Word...Click Text Box in the Text group and select your preferred text box style. Alternatively, click WordArt and select your preferred graphical style...Type the text you want to make diagonal...Click and drag the green circle above the text box or WordArt shape to rotate the object. Hold the 'Shift' key to constrain the rotation to larger increments. Release your mouse button when you have your desired diagonal angle. Alternatively, click the Rotate icon from the Arrange group and enter a specific degree of rotation in the Rotation field. Click 'OK' to save your settings...Click and drag the border around the text box or WordArt shape to relocate the text...Right-click the text box border and select Format Shape. Click Line Color from the left pane and select No Line from the right pane. Click 'Close' to remove the border."
