Flipping an Element

There are two different options you can use when you want to flip your element.

Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical
Flip Scale X and Flip Scale Y

Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical

The Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical options let you flip a drawing layer along the Camera view’s horizontal and vertical axis.

To flip a layer:

1. In the Tools toolbar, select the Transform tool or press [Shift] + [T]
2. In the Transform Tool Properties view, make sure that the Peg Selection Mode is deselected.
3. In the Camera view, use the Transform tool to select a drawing layer to flip.
4. Select Animation > Flip > Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical or press [4] or [5].

Flip Scale X and Flip Scale Y

Once your drawing layer is rotated, the original horizontal and vertical axes change. The Flip Scale X and Flip Scale Y will perform a flip on your drawing layer following its original axis.

The Flip Horizontal command flips the Layer following the Camera view X-axis.
The Flip Scale X command remembers the original X-axis of the layer and flips the element following it.

To flip an element following its original axis:

1. In the Transform Tool Properties view, make sure that the Peg Selection Mode is deselected.
2. In the Camera view, use the Transform tool to select an element that has already been transformed.
3. Select Animation > Flip > Flip Scale X or Flip Scale Y.
