Note: I don’t mean temperature!!! LOL…

Type some text on your CorelDRAW page.

Then, try Ronny Axelsson’s tip:
Ctrl + period will rotate text 270 degrees.
Ctrl + comma reverts back to normal.

    Hey! If you do this and then MANUALLY rotate the text back you can end up having your text cursor stuck sideways! What a hoot! I’m typing this with my nose because my friend that I showed it to broke both my arms when his CorelDraw X3 got its’ cursor stuck sideways afterward. To fix it, I did the same thing in reverse….took awhile to figure that one out.
