|When a component flips in free
space it rotates 180-degrees on the vertical or horizontal axis. The axis
on which it will rotate is the X or Y axis as laid out when the component
graphic was originally created. In the image below the component graphic
was originally created with the Y axis running through the center and the X
axis at the base. In the second image the Flip Horizontal command was used
to flip it on the Y axis. In the last image the Flip Vertical command was
used to make it flip on the X axis.
a component is connected to another component, even if it is in free
space, then you cannot use this command. See also
