    Powerpoint XP (2002)

    Trying to resolve a problem for someone. They recently upgraded from Office 97 to XP and have noticed a couple of the pictures on their slides have reversed - ie. mirror image. It takes this guy a couple of hours to do these technical drawings so he is not too keen to have to do it again. Any advice or ideas would be great.

    Cheers

    Paul

    If it's only a couple of pictures, it's easily remedied:
    - Select a mirrored picture by clicking it once.
    - Make sure that the Drawing toolbar is displayed.
    - On the Drawing toolbar, select Draw | Rotate or Flip | Flip Horizontal
    - Repeat for each mirrored image.

    I tried this but you could not access these features. As it turned out, by ungrouping the diagram and then regrouping, it corrected the problem but thanks for your input.

    This is caused by the way PPT 2002 reads the properties of pictures. Anyway, Shyam Pillai has posted a fix. Check out his unflip addin
