Hi all,I'm trying to mirror the footprint of an Arduino Mega but the software constantly says action can't be performed becuase it's outside the board area.  However I purchased the "Maker" version of the software so I could have the larger board area of 160x100mm which is way bigger than the mega footprint.  I need to mirror the footprint as it's going to be mounted upside down onto the pcb I'm making.Has anyone else tried to mirror this footprint? Or would someone else try it for me and see what happens. I downloaded the footprint here in the Eagle libraries section.Original article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/206562?tstart=0#206562.

Make sure the footprint is far enough away from the broad edges. When you select mirror it will shift the position of the footprint.Original article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/206696?tstart=0#206696.

Mate I have even centered the board in the absolute middle of the board outline which is 160x100mm. I could fit two megas in the outline if I wanted to. That's why I'm posting the question becuase it doesn't make any sense. Anyway I fixed it today by replacing the board with pin headers carefully aligned to match the footprint, and it's looking good.Original article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/206674?tstart=0#206674.
