I'm not sure about DDS, but it's pretty easy to do that in HTML, using a number of alternative techniques. Just create an HTML template and insert "HELLO WORLD" (or whatever) at runtime. It will appear vertically. Is generating a spool file your only alternative?

Subject: how to print text verticle in DDS but NOT rotate each character

TXTRTT (Text Rotation) keyword in printer files rotates each character.


I want to print like this:

H
E
L
L
O

W
O
R
L
D


Without rotating each character.

Does DDS offer a method to do this?  (without printing each character by itself)

Thanks!
