Q - question

How can I mirror my drawing without mirroring the blocks (symbols)?

A - answer If you have AutoCAD LT only, you can use the following steps:
  1. select all newly mirrored objects (Grip-Edit)
  2. in the Properties-Palette (Ctrl+1), filter only the block references (see the top row)
  3. change the field "Scale X" from -1 to 1 (for horizontal mirroring), or use Scale Y (for vertical mirroring)
If the insertion point of the symbols (blocks) is not symmetrical, the blocks may be displaced.
