I have Lotus Word Pro 2000, Microsoft Word 2000 and Microsoft Publisher 97 loaded on my system.

I want to make a text box of a certain size and rotate the text in that box a certain number of degrees; however, the text box must remain with vertical sides and horizontal top and bottom. In other words, only the text can rotate and the inside margins of the text box must remain the same all around.

Is there a way to do this with any of these programs?

I also have WordPerfect 10 here somewhere and I could load it if needed.

Create the text box.
Select the text.
Format-Text direction.
That's Word.

Thanks for your suggestion.

In Word 2000, which is my latest edition, that gives me rotations in 90-degree increments only. I need something at about 25 degrees.

No.

(You have to cut, go to MS Paint, paste, rotate, copy, go back to Word and paste as a picture.)
