Mirrored Text - Solved

Postby edgewing » Mon Jul 09, 2007 9:48 am

Hi All,

Wondering how one can get mirrored text? I don't seem to be able to mirror any text object resulting in a nice mirror of my PCB layout with all the text pointing the wrong way.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi All,

To mirror text (it appears you cannot mirror a text block which is how it is placed when first inserted)

select the complete text you wish to mirror
explode the text block into individual letters
select all letters
select mirror
place mirror line wherever you need to
Voila, mirrored text

Regards

I want to mirror text but the problem is that the characters itself will not be mirrored this way.

Does anybody know a solution to really mirror characters?

Theo: you can break up the text into lines and arcs for that:

- select text
- modify - explode
- mirror

That was exactly what I was looking for :D

Thanks a lot!
