“Flip Tool” Options
The available tool options for the Flip Tool can be accessed by
double clicking the Flip Tool icon.
The flip can affect the Layer, the Selection, and the Path
differently. These three buttons associate the remainder of the
options to one of those three elements. If Selection is
selected, only the selection border will be flipped, and not its
content. Don't forget the option persists after quitting.
The Tool Toggle settings control flipping in either a
Horizontal or Vertical direction. This toggle can also be
switched using a key modifier.
