Vertical text

Post by Barry Ibbetson » Sun Dec 18, 2005 11:02 am

I am using version 3.01 of Treedraw and cannot produce vertical text. I can produce a normal horizontal text box, select it and then either swing it round with one of the box handles or use the rotate text dialogue box. However at the end of this process the text disappears and I end up with nothing. How can I correct this ?

Regards, Barry Ibbetson

If you then rotate the text back to 0 degrees (horizontal) does the text reappear?

Does the same problem happen with different fonts?

Yes, text reappears when rotated back to horizontal.
No the problem doesn't happen with different fonts. (Times New Roman, Franklin Gothic Book, Rockwell tried, all O.K.)
Is this just a problem with Ms Sans Serif ?

I think so. I wouldn't expect MS Sans Serif to be displayed at any rotation other than horizontal - it is not a TrueType font.
