Hi Jorge,

Is there a vertical flip function available for components?

Have a nice day

Compact

Hi Compact,

I hope you're doing well. Define vertical flip.

If you are referring to the schematic, you can usually obtain any type
of component configuration by using the rotate and mirror operations.

If you are talking about the board then usually, the mirror command can
take components to the bottom of the board.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

It's with regards to the schematic capture. And that's what I've been
doing.
I would like to perform a vertical flip in a single action as per the
horizontal flip.

BTW - when flipping a component I'm annoyed by the way the annotations
are moved.
I have to smash the component and move them.

Is it worthwhile to enhance EAGLE to nominate locked position
annotations.

Hi Compact,

There isn't a one click way to do a vertical flip, you have to rotate to
the appropriate orientation and then mirror.

Someone else has already asked for some mechanism to basically avoid
having to smash parts as often.

hth,
Jorge Garcia

Old thread but for those googling...

You could setup a script to make it one step and make the script a keyboard shortcut.
