Transform a symbol by flipping horizontally or vertically


(Van Secrist) #1

Being able to re-use an existing symbol by flipping it on its horizontal or vertical axis would be a huge help. I could avoid importing additional images and could instead “re-purpose” an existing asset, thus saving on file weight.

Is there some way to flip an item on its axis that I am missing?

Metrics > Rotation > X > 180°

Manually editing CSS styles is also an option.

More than one way to skin a cat. Thanks, Michael.

Rotations on elements are not supported in some browsers.

Yup. Figured that out. Thanks, Andrew. :wink:

I don’t think web developers are truly helping web visitors by supporting outdated web browsers. Old browsers are security risks.

Opera Mini, IE 8, IE 9?

I’m not really a Microsoft hater. I liked the good old days where ~90% of visitors used IE. That made testing simple. But today, it’s looking pretty bad for IE 6, 7, 8, 9 and even 10…

Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates.

in IE9 you lose the perspective distorsions
also IE10/11 implementation is without prefixes and most importantly does not support the transform-style: preserve-3d, this mean you can’t use “groups” in Hype with complex rotations.
