Flipping Parts

If you want to flip a part, a limb or a whole puppet, use the Transform tool and the Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical options.

To flip a selection

1. In the Animation Tools toolbar, select the Transform tool or press [Shift] + [T].
2. In the Camera view, select the parts to be flipped.

3. In the Tool Properties view, click on the Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical option. The keyboard shortcuts are [4] or [5] respectively.

If the scaling parameter is not set to Separate Scale, the flip is not applied to the selection.
