Well, allow me to introduce you to the vertical text option. This comes in very handy for subway art designs and other types of typeface projects.
Type out your text like you normally would...ya know, clicking the text icon on the left sidebar. Type.
Now in the window that appears on the right hit 'vertical'. And your text is instantly typed up and down instead of horizontally. Ya never noticed that little tool there did you?
Okay okay okay so you wanted vertical text, but you want the letters stacked instead of each letter actually turned. Well, that's pretty easy to do. Click the text tool to start a text box. Type the first letter hit enter.
Type the second letter. Hit enter...repeat. When you've finished typing the word, you can use the line spacing slider bar in the Text Style window to spread the letters out or make them closer together.
