How to reverse profile stationing?

I need to create a profile view that starts at Station 189+00 and ends at Station 175+00 such that the stationing of the profile decends from left to right. How do I do this in Civil 3D 2010?

I found what I needed. Under the summary tab in the profile view style there is the option to switch the view direction from left to right.

That option is also on the Graph tab of the style editor.

All of my slope labels have the opposite sign now. Is there an easy way to fix that or do I need to create an expression?

I see the correct signage, based on the stationing. I do get the slope labels flipped to the other side of the tangents so I edit the Attachment point and Y offset value to flip them back on top.

Yes, the slope direction would be correct. I guess I am trying to recreate a plan sheet that is incorrect. I decided to leave the slope signage as assigned by Civil 3D.
