I suppose you could just resize the text box until it is a single character wide.

Yes indeed but as a lot of carriage returns it's not very "pro" 😉

Here I typed some text, duplicated the frame, then resized the frame to a long, narrow width. It does have its issues in that a mix of lowercase and uppercase can leave two lowercase characters together.

It may be that turning on East Asian functionality in the preferences would work. I dunno. But it does support vertical text.
