How to Rotate Text in Microsoft PowerPoint
One way you can rotate text is by changing the degree. If you haven’t inserted the text yet, you can do that by clicking on the Insert tab, followed by the Text Box on your PowerPoint document.
The cursor will change shape, and when it does, it’s time to draw the text box. Once it’s there, type your text and then click on the Shape Format option at the top. Make sure to locate the Rotate option.
Once you click on the Rotate option, you’ll see various options. You can rotate right or left 90 degrees, flip vertical or horizontal. At the bottom, you’ll see the More Rotation Options.
When the Format Shape window appears, locate the Rotation option to the right. Click on the arrow that points up and down until the text rotates to a position you’re happy with.
How to Rotate Text Using the Mouse in PowerPoint
If the text you’re rotating doesn’t have to be at an exact degree, you can also move it using your computer’s mouse. Once you’ve added the text box and the text, you’ll need to do the following.
Note: Just in case you forgot how to add the box, you’ll need to click on the Insert tab, followed by the Text Box. Type your text.
Right above the text box, you’ll see a circular arrow. Click on it and move it (without letting go) in a circular motion, and you’ll see how the text moves as well.
