The Vertical Type Tools
The 3 vertical type tools serve the same function as the tools we have gone over, but display type vertically instead of horizontally. Follow the steps of each of the previous type tools using the corresponding vertical tools… the vertical type tool, the vertical area type tool and the vertical type on a path tool. Once you have mastered these and the other type tools, text can be created in any shape or form.
