Mirrored Text

Have you ever received a drawing or made a drawing that the text was mirrored, thus unreadable? This mainly happens when a block with either text or attributes is mirrored and the system variable “MIRRTEXT” has been set to <1>.

As I have shown in previous posts, changing a system variable is easy by either using the SYSVDLG dialog box or simply typing the name of the system variable – MIRRTEXT and changing it to <0>.
