Default Upside down in MS Word?

Any way to print upside down and right side up in word?

That is, on 8.5 x 11, print "DAVID" upside down in the 2nd quarter of the sheet, and then "DAVID" right side up below it? I want to make tent style place names.

Yes, obviously I can do that in Paint Shop Pro or other image processing programs by combining a flipped image with a normal image.

You can insert one Word Art shape, format it to taste, then duplicate and rotate it.

Within a Word table cell you can format text horizontal, 90 degrees clockwise or 90 degrees counter-clockwise. Combine the last two to get text 180 degrees different.

You can also use a Beetle to haul 4x8 wallboard...

Paint Shop Pro did the needed text changes. The WordArt drawing tool was too much trouble to learn for just one small task.

I would like to try the Word table method you describe, though.
