    Default Mirroring text

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    This is my question.It is about mirroring text.I have MTEXT , so I want my text to be displased by the mirror line but not to be mirrored itself so it can be readable. Imagin two twin buildings ,exactly the same but mirrored. I have one of them done , but not the other one. And they are huge. So when I try to mirror everithing at the same time the text is goin on its proper place but it's not readable cause it's mirrored. I know that there is an option this text to be only displased , I've done this before , but I don't remeber on which version. Now I'm using AutoCAD 2004. Can somebody tell me if this is possible for this version or not?

    Are you referring to the MIRRTEXT system variable?

    No? Leave it at "0" then.

    Yes? Change it to a value of "1".

    You're entirely welcomed.

    Can you tell us why you are using AutoCAD 2004 yet your profile says you are using 2010?

    You got down-graded to 2004 with a move to another department? That truly sucks.
