Summary: At times we are unable to create a shape and flip it horizontally or vertically with the same size (with the width & height) .





Here’s a short procedure to help you with the process:



Please uncheck the option for Item-> Edit> Shape



To create an horizontal reflection:




  • Copy the width of your shape from the measurement palette

  • Drag the right (or left) bounds of your shape across its opposite side

  • You should end up with your shape flipped horizontally but distorted

  • Paste the copied width back into the measurement palette



To create a vertical reflection:




  • Copy the height of your shape from the measurement palette

  • Drag the top (or bottom) bounds of your shape across its opposite side

  • You should end up with your shape flipped vertically but distorted.

  • Paste the copied height back into the measurement palette
