Mirroring Text

I am trying to mirror text.  Specifically, turning an "S" into a backwards S.  When selecting the character, 8 nodes appear at the 4 corners:  4 inner and 4 outer nodes to be exact.  If you click & hold one of the outer/square nodes, you can drag it horizontally, creating a mirror image of the character.  However, once you release the node the character returns to normal.  How do you get around this and create a mirror image?  It is obvious that the function resides within the software code, but I am unable to find the command to do so. 

To mirror text:

1.select your text

2.right click on it and select ‘Create Symbol from Selection’

3.right click again and select Flip > Flip Horizontal

4.once you mirrored your text, delete the symbol you created in step 2 form Symbol Libraries > Custom Symbols

 

Hope this helps.
