Imagine you are working on a graphic design project in CorelDraw and suddenly you say why i am always writing text horizontally i should try Vertical Text now… hmm .
You move your cursor to the text tool ( button with an A symbol ) and click it and now your eyes are looking for vertical text option in Property Bar. But soon you realize that there is no option to write text vertically. What!
Lot of people at this point just say no problem still i can use the Enter Key on the keyboard, and the problem is solved. You later realize that it was a pain rather than relief, if client asks to change the text in the design.
At CorelDraw forums the best solution i could find was our trusty Character and Enter method.
There is a very simple solution for writing the text vertically in your designs when usign Coreldraw rather than rotating every character or the plain old Enter technique.
After typing your text do this
Convert it to paragraph text if its Artistic Text ( You may change it to Artistic later On )
Now from your menu bar go to Tools -> Options -> Text
Look forÂ Minimum Line Width property and reduce it from 3 to 1 and click Ok.
All now left is click and drag the bottom handler down so that the text can take up the space and after that push the right side handler inside so that the space of text area is only for a single character.
As you push right side text handler inside you would see the characters shifting down and ultimately only with one single character per line.
You may want to adjust the alignment or character spacing if you want to and that’s it.
