text help!

so i've been using PSP7 for years now (probably about 10 plus years), but i've finally started to use photoshop since i realized it does a lot more things that PSP doesn't do. i've gotten good at figuring certain things out, but i can't figure this out for the life of me. and it's the easiest thing ever that i KNOW i'm going to headdesk once someone tells me how to do it.

i want slanting text. i know how to do it in PSP7, but text there just doesn't look right. so i want to finally do it in PS.

someone please teach me the ways of the slanted text in photoshop. i've looked through the memories already, and the only thing i can find is how to warp text.

eta: I FIGURED IT OUT!!! i actually did it by accident. so for future reference if anyone else is having the issue, whenever you're about to do your text, drag the cursor so it makes a box. you can rotate that box, then just click on your layer to make it go away. YAY i are smrt lol.
