Sorry me again....
Been trying to work out how to create text boxes with rotated text (worksheet or chart, not been able to do either)
API mate does not change the code it returns if I take a very simple file of a few calles and one simple text box, the save it with normal text orientation, and rotated. The code from APImate 7.12 is basically identical and if I execute it, the text is horizontal both times.
I can live without APImate handling it, as long as I can work out how to do it, but it seems that it is always best if APImate deals with it [as it would stop me having to ask questions here... ]
