How to Create Mirror Text in MS Word


Want to write mirror text? It’s actually very easy to do in MS Word.

You can get Word to display text in mirror style if you want a heading or title written backwards, for example, to make a brochure or newsletter more interesting.

To write text backwards, what’s often called mirror writing, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Drawing toolbar (View > Toolbars > Drawing) and click where you want the mirror text to appear
  2. Click the WordArt icon (the large blue A) from the drawing toolbar.
  3. Enter your text, select the font type and size, and click OK.
  4. Click the Draw drop-down menu on the Drawing toolbar (extreme left of toolbar)
  5. Select Rotate, Flip, or Flip Horizontal and you’ll get different types of backwards writing.

Experiment with the settings to get the type of layout you want.
