I'm using shape layer paths to animate shapes, which is nice because of the interpolation. Up to this point I didn't think it was possible to reverse the direction of the path in an easy way.

While working I have accidentally flipped the direction of one of the keyframed paths, probably by hitting a hotkey.

Anybody knows what this shortcut might be, or how to reverse the path direction by other means?

I'm using CS6.

If you twirl down your path layer's properties on the timeline, go into the contents into the properties for your shape and next to the shape path is a set of icons with arrows. Click the one that's not pressed.
