Default How to flip an entire page.

I made a page, with a bunch of layers and objects. I need to flip the entire page, reverse it so I can print clear stickers that will go on the inside of windows.

How can I flip the entire page?

Go to Edit > Select all > click the Group icon

Then, go to Arrange > Flip and Rotate

All done, have fun

Default Re: How to flip an entire page.

Thank you so much. I had done it along ago and then forgot how.

HOWEVER, this creates a new problem. I did a decal/label based on a template. It is pretty simple, 3 labels across and 4 deep, 2.5 inch round labels. When I print them the do not line up and it is a good Canon inkjet. They are way too far down and left. Plus the amount they are off increases as you look down the rows. In designing them I left a good 1/4" clear border and that is not enough even.

I had a LaserJet 4600 and never had that problem, but it died.

Any thoughts? Thanks again.

Ctrl+A to select all objects. Lock them together (although you don't have to). Then just move the whole design up the page and right a bit to correct the offset.

This suggests that the gap settings are incorrect.

Perhaps you could define the boundaries of the printed area using the red line guides. Do this before you flip.
Group the whole block of what you want to print, and drag the handles through to flip it.
Then carefully align the right and left handles to the vertical red lines. There should have been no shift in the vertical position of the block.

I haven't tried it, but I think it might work.
