MS Word - how to create an upside down text box?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to create an upside down text box in Word? I am at my Dad's house and his computer is all messed up. They don't have PP, which I am pretty sure I know how to do this in there, and there help isn't installed. I did a quick search online as welll, but no luck. Help please!!

Do you want to change a text box or actual text? I think this will work just for the text box(if that makes sense), its a little tedious, but may do what you're trying to accomplish (I think,lol) I cant remember the easier way to do it!


Create your text box. Then right click on the border, and choose 'copy'. Next, on the edit menu, click 'Paste Special'.


Then paste it as a picture.


You should then see the rotate and flip tools on the actual textbox or the drawing toolbar to manipulate the new box exactly as you want. It may look a little blurry when its flipped/rotated, but I think it will still print ok.


Let me know if my directions arent clear.


Hope this works!

you may already have it done, but ...


1) once you have created the text box, highlight the text

2) in the main menu above, go to Format > Text Direction


Hope this helps!

YAY!!! Thanks, so much ladies! I wasn't able to do it in Word, but I was able to create it and flip it in PP now that I am home and I did the paste special. Learn a new thing everyday.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
