The rotations the questioner is talking about - in paragraph styles - 
cannot be applied cumulatively, of course. So your arithmetic, whilst 
unimpeachable, is surely of no help? I don't see any way to rotate a 
frame (which can accept fields) in a text document; what am I 
missing, please? You can create a text box or paste in one created in 
Draw and you can rotate this, but then I find (as he suggests) that 
you cannot insert the fields.
