How do I write text vertically? Or flip a text box 90 degrees?

FWIW, you can do this quite easily in Publisher if you happen to have it.

When the cursor is in the text box, the Text Box Tools ribbon will be
available. Click the Text Direction button on the left end of the ribbon
once or twice, depending on the direction you want. The third click will
return it to the original direction.

If you use a table instead of a text box, the Text Direction button is on
the Table Tools > Layout ribbon, in the Alignment group.

For other rotations or upside-down text, see
