I've been having a problem with instrument symbols in AutoCAD P&ID 2013 printing out mirrored. They look fine on the screen and even on the print preview, but they print out mirrored. The strange thing is that my co-workers can print the same drawings using the same print set-up to the same printers without problem.

It sounds like maybe P&ID needs to be reset to defaults, especially if the exact same drawing prints fine on other computers than yours. Could it possibly have something to do with the printer driver or PC3 that you have? Do you get the same output no matter what printer or PC3 you select? If you are working with PC3 files, try copying them over from one of your coworker's computer. The one(s) you have might be damaged.
If you would like to try resetting P&ID to defaults, you can do so by deleting the following two folders and registry key. Be sure to exit P&ID first so that it's not running.
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\AutoCAD P&ID 2013 - English
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD P&ID 2013 - English
Let me now if this helps.

Sorry for the delayed response. I ended up just re-installing AutoCAD P&ID 2013. It didn't matter which pc3 I used and I was a bit worried about messing around in the registry. The re-install seemed to do the trick, but it takes such a long time to get everything back to the way I had it set up. It's frustrating when you have a project to deliver. I wish that I had tried your way. Thank you for your help!
