i have created some rather complex type containers in indesign, and need to reflect them across their vertical axis. Is there a way that i can do this without also reflecting the type they contain? Or, can i reflect both, and then reflect the type back so it is right-reading? Any thoughts?
Thanks for the response. i actually already worked around it. i couldn't figure out how to do what i wanted, so i just recreated the type container as a shape, reflected that, then turned it into a type container. Took longer, since i had to do it a bunch of times
You would have to convert the text to outlines, then use the flip horizontal command in the transform palette flyout menu.
You can try fooling around with anchored objects, but I could not find anythnig there and converting to outlines seems to be the best solution(though I usually try to keep things editable whenever possible).
