mirror object

Post by kbrcadman » Mon Sep 19, 2016 8:29 pm

Is there a tool , or planning for a tool that would mirror an object? We comment on diagrams with PDF-Xchange and although rotate works well with symmetrical objects, asymmetrical objects need to be redrawn if mirror copy is needed.

Hello kbrcadman,

Currently there is no such feature, however, there is an active feature request for this which has been worked on. I have raised the priority of the ticket and added your email to the "requester" list.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in the matter.

Cheers!

You may try to use the "Transform Selection" feature from Menu/Object. Use "Edit Content" tool, select necessary objects on the page and use such feature. On the displayed dialog set the -100% (negative number) for Width/Height fields.

Thank-you Vasyl. This works on text documents, unfortunately I'm trying to mirror a stamp object. "Transform Selection" does not currently allow -100% when a single stamp is selected.

Hi Vasyl, I was not aware of this option! Cool!

I have refined the ticket (2578) to include this suggestion, also that stamps are excluded from this solution. I am hoping this could be added.

Thanks!

Hi!

This feature would be really neat for those of us doing quantity take offs in the construction industry.

Often, apartment buildings are mirrored from a central axis, so the ability to Perimeter half of it and then copy/mirror would save a LOT of time :o
Could you please update us on what happened to this request?

Thanks.

Hello MJN,

Most objects should now have an option in the Right click context menu under arrange to "Flip" if it is possible.
