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 Tool Properties view, make sure that the Peg Selection Mode is disabled.
3. In the Camera view, select the parts to be flipped.

4. 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.
