upside down lettering

The "Adjust flipped text" preference is now in Document Preferences and it is global for all text in your file. Not good if you want some text flipped and some not.

Starting in VW 2011 though, you can rotate an individual text block 180? and it will not flip back even with the preference set to adjust flipped text.

You can select the rotated text mode of the text tool and pull a new text block right to left and your typed text will be upside down once you exit the block.

But I find it easier to just write the text normally, then set the rotation to 180? on the Object Info Palette.

You can also change how text behaves when you edit it (either in place or rotated so you can more easily read what your typing) by toggling on and off the "Edit text horizontally by default" option in the Edit panel of the preferences.

You can disable "Adjust Flipped Text" in the Pref's...

...a little tip in relation to this, if you are exporting to DWG the "Adjust Flipped Text" setting doesn't export i.e.. upside down and mirrored text in VWs that looks correct will be upside down and mirrored in the DWG export........thus I never work with "Adjust Flipped Text" activated in general.

PS. There is also an option for "Adjust Flipped Text" in the Advanced Viewport Properties.......

Hi, this is an old thread but today I moved a lot of things from one design layer to another in the same document and hundreds of elevation benchmarks flipped. The "Adjust flipped text" is already ticked and untick/retick does nothing. Every other text is good, just the elevation benchmarks. Any ideas before I start the fun work of redoing all of them?

 

 

***EDIT Just in case anyone else encounters this, I found a weird solution. Select all your flipped things and in the Object Info bar open the drop down menu of "plane". Mine were all in "3D" so I changed them to Screen and then, if you like, change them back Layer. 3D option won't be available anymore.
