Is it possible to Flip/reverse line direction in a profile?

I have a special ditch profile that I'd like to use a linetype with arrows on.  Currently, it shows the arrows going up station with my mainline profile.  i.e. now water does flow uphill...

 

How can I flip this line?

Without seeing any images/files, create a linetype with the symbol/text flipped. Make a new profile style using the flipped line.

Not real sure if this will work for you with your profile, but we use a small lisp routine to reverse polylines, may work for you. Youll have to appload this then type "RPL"

The linetype is coming from a style.

Reverse is a relatively new command to AutoCAD that will reverse the direction of polylines.

Does that work with profiles?

Reverse does not work with profiles. The additional linetype answer is the correct one.
