Create A Mirror Image Of An Object In Word 2003

Here is another great tip that a Lockergnome reader recently shared with me. Given that I spend so much time working with drawing objects in Word, I found it to be very helpful and thought I would pass it along.

Creating a mirror image of an object on your Word document is not as painful as you may think is to be. Once you create a copy of the object, you can use the Rotate or Flip command to create the mirror image as described below:

  1. Within your document, click the AutoShape that you want to mirror.
  2. From the Edit menu, click Copy and then click Paste.
  3. On the Drawing toolbar, click Draw, point to Rotate or Flip, and then click Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical.
  4. Drag and position the duplicate object so that it mirrors the original object.
