Altering the Alignment
If you need to set the rotation of the entries in a spreadsheet at angles
other than 45 and 90 degrees (up or down), you need to click the Format
Cell Alignment option on the Orientation button’s drop-down menu. Doing
so opens the Alignment tab of the Format Cells dialog box (or press Ctrl+1
and click the Alignment tab) where you can then use the controls in the
Orientation section to set the angle and number of degrees.
To set a new angle, enter the number of degrees in the Degrees text box, click
the appropriate place on the semicircular diagram, or drag the line extending
from the word Text in the diagram to the desired angle.
