im having trouble finding resources for using visio with vba macros. there are multiple things im trying to work out, but currently i need my text to rotate 90 degrees counter clockwise. visShape.CellsU("TextDirection").FormulaU = "1" works with rotating counterclockwise, but visShape.CellsU("TextDirection").FormulaU = "2" and visShape.CellsU("TextDirection").FormulaU = "3" do nothing. any suggestions?


visShape.CellsU("TxtAngle").FormulaU = "90 deg"


The TextDirection cell is not used for angular rotations.  It only allows the text to flow horizontally or vertically.  Allowed entry values are either 0 or 1.  See
