I have a need to manipulate fonts as follows - I want to type fonts in the vertical - example ->   A                  B                  Cand then be able to adjust the string of text to so that the letters remain vertical but the entire string coould be at any angle

example -> A

B

C

or -> A

B

C

This can be done on Photoshop but don't have the $$$ for it so is there a feature or plug-in that does it?

Thanks,

I don't get what you're trying to do. Try putting your "A B C" inside of a [ code ] block, otherwise the forum is trimming the spaces at the beginning of the line.

A
 B
  C

^ Like that.

Sorry, I think the forum app deleted my spaces, let me try again by using the "-" instead of spaces to get my letters to line up correctly, Your example does illustrate what I am trying to do though.

example-> A

---------B

-------C

or ->

example -> A

--------------B

-----------------C

Note: in Photoshop the font tool has a an option for the direction of the text, a right arrow -> for l to r horizontal or a down arrow \|/ for vertical top to bottom. Then the text box can be manipulated or pulled to obtain the angle desired.

Thanks

You can't type vertically because there is actually no text box. Most of this can, however, be done by typing it out on its own layer, selecting it, and then dragging one handle of the selection with the right mouse button to the desired angle.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
