How To Make Text Vertical In Google Sheets
Have you ever wondered how to create vertical text in Google Sheets?
Vertical text can be useful if you need to save space in your spreadsheet or you might simply want to display text vertically for aesthetic purposes.
In this guide, we will explain how you can use the Text Direction formatting options to create vertical text in Google Sheets.
How To Rotate Text In Google Sheets
Here’s how to rotate text in Google Sheets.
First, select the cell or range of cells you want to convert into vertical text.
In the example above, we have several row headers in the range B2:B13 that we want to display as vertical text.
Click on the Text Direction icon in the Google Sheets toolbar.
Select the Rotate up if you want the text to be read upwards.
The text formatting will automatically apply to the selected range.
This option is also a good way to label column headers as well since it allows you to display more information in a smaller space.
Users can also choose the Rotate down option if they want the text to be read going down.
The result is similar to the Rotate up option but rotated 180 degrees.
Users can also choose to stack letters vertically.
Each letter in the text will occupy a new line rather than being read as a single word.
If you want to convert the vertical text back into regular text, you can click on the None option to revert the applied formatting.
This guide should be everything you need to make text vertical in Google Sheets.
