Changing the direction of a LineString item

A LineString item remembers the direction in which it was drawn. The direction is important in the following cases:

  • for some editing operations on the LineString item (e.g. when using the LineString item command Append Line)
  • with LineString items which use a pen with an offset
  • when a LineString item is converted into a Polygon item and the Polygon item uses a pen with an offset
  • when constructing using offsets (e.g. with LineString and Polygon.

To change the direction of an item or item(s), select them first and use the Reverse option.
