Hi, my name is Cathy. Reversing text in Microsoft Word can be achieved very easily and it can add that extra flair to your document. And I'll show you how. If you go to your document and you should insert a text box first. So, go up into your menu to Insert. Drag your mouse over to Text Box. Go all the way down and draw a text box. Place your cursor in the document and drag out the size of your text box, usually not too big, depending on how much text you have. Type in your text, sample text. And then, what you'll need to do, is you'll need to right click on the text box. Copy the text box, place your cursor somewhere else in the document and paste as a picture. And this little icon right here is telling you that you can paste it as a picture. And this little icon right here is telling you that you can paste it as a picture. Now that I've gone in and pasted the extra text box, I can delete the original text box. And this is so that you can alleviate any confusion when you're working with both. So, I'll go in here and I'll click on the original text box and I'll simply click Delete. Now, I have my text box as a picture. And so, I can manipulate this more easily. So, I'll go up to format and to rotate and here's where the fun begins. You can flip vertical and then, you'll have to flip, rotate 90 degrees. And now, you can drag your text box around however you see fit. And here, I have achieved reversed text. And that's how you reverse text in Microsoft Word. Thanks for watching, I'm Cathy.
