    Hey guys, I really need some help on this one.

    I have to print out a bunch of sheets, and I have the text filling the page horizontally, I just need to stretch the text vertically NOT horizontally.

    How do I do this?

    Thanks

    Create text as a picture, that will allow you to stretch it in any direction.

    Of course!

    What I wanted to suggest and couldn't remember was actually page orientation..from vertical to horizontal. So no good for you:)

    So far none of these solutions have worked, however maybe I am doing it wrong.

    Saving as picture and stretching= I can't do this because I have to make about 200 different sheets. If I saved them all and stretched it would take forever.

    Textbox= that only seems to make my text box taller, it doesnt actually make the text taller, just the box.

    Page properties= I couldnt find anything here.


    Thanks for the input, could you guys continue to help me out here...i need to get this done.

    Thanks

    By stretch do you actually mean you want to make the text physically larger, or just print vertically on a page rather than horizontally?

    Stretch vertically than print. Grab the piece of paper, quarter turn it will now be stretched horizontally! Guaranteed! Sorry I can't really help. But smile it will be figured out.

    When I say stretch I mean, to actually make the font larger in the vertical direction. Not horizontally.

    I need to fill up the paper vertically. Can anyone please help?
