In 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 degrees. I don't find any option do that.

Could anybody point me to how to do that?

    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.

In addition, on the "Text" pane, there is a button with 3 up arrows you can use to switch between text directions:
