 Sideways text
Is there a property for text to allow it be shown running sideways down
the edge of an object? Similar for tabs on the right edge of a folder?

Paul,

I don't believe there is any way to do this in Paradox -- where the
actual characters are rotated...  You could make a text box, turn on
word wrap, and put a hard return between each character, center the text
and have text read top to bottom like that...

If you *really* want the characters rotated, you could search the web
for a freeware or shareware font editor, download it, edit a copy of the
font you're using, and rotate the characters - sounds hard, but a good
font editor makes this fairly easy...

Hope this helps,

Liz

Not as such. Try using a graphics program to create the text, grab it
into a graphic file like a BMP, and place it where you want ...
