Can I rotate or change the angle of fonts in a cell?

Excel Online doesn’t have the font orientation option for you to apply vertical fonts or rotate fonts in an angle.

If you have the Excel desktop application, you can use it to open your workbook and change font angles. Here’s how: 

Click Open in Excel and follow the steps in Rotate or reposition data in a cell.  

Open in Excel button

Note: You won’t be able to see the changes when you reopen the workbook in Excel Online since it isn’t supported.

If you don't have the Excel desktop application, you can give it a try. Or you can buy it here, when you're ready to switch.
