FYI, If you flip a Balloon after drawing the text within the balloon flips as well.

Bob,

I know but it's not my fault. Use Mirror by Line and it will work fine.

Thanks for the tip, Alfred. I assumed we were stuck with it, assuming it was something to do with Advanced Text.

Okay. There is a Mirror command in PowerCADD that misbehaves when you mirror advanced text. It is not a trivial thing to program.

In the Balloon Text tool you can flip the text left and right when you have a leader. At the risk of being blasted for bragging, it does work at any rotation angle, including upside down. This is also true of the similar type objects in Doors & Windows and with the Welding Symbol tool.

This programming is also in the WildTools Mirror by Line command.
