    One character at a time and rotate and size each of them.

    Dan's suggestion is better!
    The only problem that I've had with that is lining-up different width letters and numbers.

    Or make each letter a seperate item. Then position as needed.

    I just put in text applying the center on board and hit enter after each character, then select all and rotate
