On the slant

I'm busily designing (in MS Word) a poster for my bowls club. On to which I would like to add a (temporary) corner text box with dates for open days. No problem so far adding the corner or adding text, but I would like the text in it to be at 45 degrees, but can't find a facility for this, Something like what I am looking for is available in "formatting" in MS Excel where the text can be swung around to your hearts content.
Anyone any ideas?

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: On the slant

I use the Wordart facility in Word to achieve that effect.

Re: On the slant

Insert -> wordart  then select the wordart block  format-> Rotate.
By the way have you come across groupspaces.com  - useful for a club website/ calendar/ announcements/ subscriptions etc
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: On the slant

There's another way:
Create a text box and type in your text.
Right Click the text box border and select 'Cut'
Click the down arrow on the Paste icon top left and click Paste Special.
Select a graphics format (e.g GIF)
Click OK.
You now have a graphic of your text to format and spin to your heart's content.
