Rotated fonts -here is an easy way (LONG !)

oops, I forgot to add the .dfm file
You'll need to convert this back from the source
rtm !

Good luck.

=============rotest.dfm======
object Form1: TForm1
  Left = 79
  Top = 88
  Width = 435
  Height = 300
  Caption = 'Form1'
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -13
  Font.Name = 'System'
  Font.Style = []
  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 16
  object PaintBox1: TPaintBox
    Left = 72
    Top = 40
    Width = 313
    Height = 225
    OnPaint = paintbox1paint
  end
  object Button1: TButton
    Left = 41
    Top = 8
    Width = 89
    Height = 33
    Caption = 'Exit'
    TabOrder = 0
    OnClick = doexit
  end
end
