- [Instructor] You can create the mirror image of a shape…using the flip tool.…Using the dropdown menu, I'll choose symbols…and grab the and sign.…Use the shortcut key f to focus in.…Now by dragging the grips,…I can actually create a mirror image,…but there's an easier way.…You can use the flip tool.…Make sure the object is selected,…and choose it from the menu.…Sometimes this is also called mirroring,…and uses the letter m as its shortcut key.…Okay, so you'll see three arrows down here,…and if you mouse over them,…it gives you a preview of what the object will look like…flipped on that axis.…
Click on the preferred arrow,…and then dismiss the mirror tool…by clicking anywhere in the empty work plane.…
