Issue with mirroring blocks

465 Views, 5 Replies

Dear Friends,

In a block i have some texts and dimensions. When i mirror it i'm having problem with the texts and dimensions mirrored and it looks really odd. My intention is to mirror the block but at the same time texts and the dims should be steady to read.

See attached for example.

Thanks guys.

Have you checked the setting variable for MIRRTXT?

Texts in a block will mirror regardless of MIRRTEXT variable setting.

Try replacing the Text within the block to an Attribute instead.

Just mirrored a block with attribute text and the text maintains same orientation.
