Default Is it possible to skew text or justify it along a diagonal margin?

Publisher 2003
Without creating a graphic as a placeholder to wrap text around, is there a
way to justify a paragraph of text along a specified diagonal margin at an
angle or skew it?

For example, text should flow horizontally across the entire width of the
text box for the first line. But progressively, as more lines are entered,
each successive line should indent a fraction more from the left (or right)
than the previous line until at the vertical end of the text box, the text on
the final line fills about 1/2 of the original horizontal width of the first
line.

Why not use a graphic? You can achieve what you want by creative text formatting.

to be a way.... Have a great weekend.
