Problem changing type orientation in illustrator


Question

I'm trying to change the type orientation in Illustrator CS5, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Normally i select type > type orientation > Vertical and the orientation changes so that the letters are stacked.

Lately however, when i select this option it simply rotates the entire line of text 90 degrees. The same thing happens with the vertical type tool, instead of typing one letter below the other, it just types as though i have my line rotated.

The only way I have been able to work around this is to hit enter between each letter, which works but not quite how i want it to.

While working with vertical type tool make sure that your character orientation is set to 0.

If you unable to see the options then on your characters tab Go to Menu > Show Options . It will display all settings of your type.
