Font alignment in new web based excel

Occasional Visitor

Excel has decided to rotate all my text to vertical. It appears the rotation options have been removed. How to I re orient all my text to horizontal? Do I rebuild an new sheet?

Rotate text

We're sorry. Excel for the web doesn’t have the font orientation option for you to apply vertical text or rotate text in an angle.

To express your interest in having this feature in Excel for the web, please go to the Visio Suggestion Box and click the Vote button. 

If you have the Excel desktop application, you can use it to open your workbook and rotate text there.


Thank you for your understanding and patience
