Use SHIFT + X and SHIFT+ Y for flipping blueprints

Post by fishycat »

TL;DR
Use SHIFT + X and SHIFT+ Y for flipping blueprints
What ?
My suggestion is to use SHIFT + X and SHIFT+ Y for flipping blueprints.
Why ?
It is easier to remember which axis is which. Hmm, was G vertical flip or horizontal?
With the new system you always know which axis you flip.

Sure, but IMHO makes just sense with x and y as default.

So Shift-X flips vertically and Shift-y horizontally?!

Almost...


I guess it makes more sense with german keyboard layout with x and y next to each other.
