Using draw.io. I have text box with default text direction horizontal. I am trying change the text direction to vertical or trying to rotate the text box 90 degree. I don't find any option do that. Could anybody point me how to do that? Thanks in advance.

:) Arrange --> direction -> Rotate – user34716 Feb 15 '13 at 22:03
There will be rotation handles on shapes by next week, then you can rotate in the normal way for such applications. – David Feb 16 '13 at 7:18

Also: Text, Alignment, Vertical - A rotation handle has also been added.
