The only way I can figure out how to do this is:

EXAMPLE
Image

1. Go to Object menu, select Split Text
2. Now make sure you have the Object Manager open. Then you can select each text object, or you can multi-select (Shift-click).
3. You can activate your Grid and set it's parameters, X-Y, Y-Z, Z-X, and set custom parameters. Set your Grid up to help you align your text.
4. Manually move each letter, placing them vertically. Then multi-select all letters, using the Object Manager. Go to Object menu, Align-Left. You will probably need to go to Customize and uncheck the vertical option. All I could get this to do was jumble all the letters together.

Hello again After playing around with vidomans suggestion I have found another way to get vertical text. When you inter text hit enter after each letter. This way all your lettering will come out in a vertical line. You will also be able to use all your features in the easy palette. With Vidomans way I could only use Object Motion in Object Effects. And Text Motion in Text Effects. When you use the process I stumbled across you have access to all features in Object Effects and Text Effects. Vidoman thank you for getting me on the path to be able learn. Thank You Ed.
