This is what things look like if I try to use any fonts in the Yu family with Microsoft Word 2007 and vertical text orientation (shown here with 游明朝). It's a recent issue that started popping up a couple of weeks ago.


Horizontal text orientation works properly (indeed, the issue is pretty much how punctuation does not get rotated). All other Asian fonts not in the 游 family seem to work fine.

Any idea how to resolve it?

You had better contact Microsoft Support for this phenomenon. Jun 1

Or how about try re-downloading 游 family fonts?

Horizontal text orientation with 遊明朝 font works properly on my PC (OS: Windows 10, Word version: Microsoft Office).
