Windows 7: Excel - Format Axis - Angle greyed out!?

Excel - Format Axis - Angle greyed out!?

I made a simple chart plotting economic data from 1960 to present using the year on the time axis. I want to angle the text on a 45 incline for readability.

The Custom angle is greyed out. I can choose the Text Direction (Horizontal, Stacked, Rotate 90 degrees, Rotate 270 degrees) but I want to specify a custom angle.

Why is the custom angle greyed out?

RESOLVED - The angle can only be set when the direction is set to HORIZONTAL. Thanks.
