MIRRTEXT set to 1 works, but you won't like the result. So the basic answer is no, not an option.

After you mirror it, use "JustifyText" and set it back to left justy.

I suspect the OP kind of knew how to 'fix' it after the fact :smileysad:

Is it MTEXT?

If so when you click on it is the bounding box larger that the text length?
