first point of mirror line

Hi guys,


I met a problem in the half way of mirroring an object, cause I found out that a wrong point has been selected as the first point of mirror line. So in this case, if I cancel the command and re-do MIRROR again, I have to select the target object again.


Just want to know is there a way that the first point of mirror line can be re-selected without deselecting the target object?


Appreciate your replies.

Assuming PICKFIRST is set to 1 and you are not just deselecting the Entities and not know why...


When you end the MIRROR Command with Escape you will lose the first point that was selected.

When you invoke the second instance of MIRROR Command just use P for Previous to get the same selection set.

Then pick the proper point for the Mirror.

Hi Charles,


Thanks for the help!


The command PREVIOUS solved the problem successfully by doing the 2nd MIRROR. This could help me a lot when mirroring a object among crowded entities in a drawing.
