How do I rotate a scalebar on a layout? I want it displayed vertically, not horizontally.

Mapping Center Answer:

The only way is to convert it to graphics and then rotate it.  If you want to un-rotate the text, you'll need to ungroup the graphic version of the scalebar, select all of the numeric text elements, rotate them, and then right align them.
