I have a Shape that I use to toggle a show/hide columns macro. When clicked it rotate 90 degrees. That works fine.
But I need to make the text stay readable, ie. not upside down.
upside down text
Normally I'd record a macro to get the syntax. But can't seem to find how to make text go upside down.

Thanks for any help.

Are you using code to rotate the arrow?

If you are can you post it?

Here's how you can rotate the text in shape.
    ActiveSheet.Shapes(1).TextFrame2.ThreeD.IncrementRotationZ 180
