Flipping shapes

November 13, 2014

Recently SD user Jon Cavanaugh asked why he couldn't flip a shape in order to get a word bubble to face the other direction.

Definitely possible. Just not obvious. (The UI probably needs tweaking here.) There are two small flip buttons on the properties panel that shows up when you select a shape. One for horizontal and one for vertical. If you want to flip a word bubble, just click the horizontal flip.

You can also do this by holding down the option key (on osx) or alt key (on windows) and hitting the arrow keys when you have a shape selected.
