How do you flip loaders in map editor?

You can only place loaders that unload their entity. How do you flip them in the map editor, so they load it instead?

Place the loader so that the belt end faces away from the chest, and then rotate the already placed loader which should reverse its direction so that it loads the entity.
I'm an admin over at https://wiki.factorio.com. Feel free to contact me if there's anything wrong (or right) with it.

And with what do I reverse it? Which button? Pressing "R" on it does nothing.

I may be wrong (I've never played with loaders), but I believe someone once said that you need to use console commands (can't find the reference, though).
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.
