Vertical Text

Hi. I've been looking all over, and haven't find a way to compose typography in a vertical orientation, such as acrostics –at the start–. Is this possible with QC?

Thanks!

Hi, do you have any sample image which shows what you are achieving? I looked at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrostic and can imagine there are a thousand ways a acrostic can be visualized.

Maybe something with the Freeboard patch and/or javascript? Can come close changing Image With String to fixed width (pixels) and fiddling with font size and image width and height, but it doesn't quite get there (for ex., letters like "I" want to stay on the same line because they are thin....)
