How to let autocad mirror text not to be backwards? After mirroring object with text in autocad or ZWCAD+, the text flipped, it become backwards, is it possible to avoid that text is also mirror in such case, so text stays readable but new positioned on the mirrored part as it was positioned before.

To make the text not be mirrored along with the object, you need to set ZWCAD+ variable MirrText to be zero. Type MirrText on command line, then input 0 or off.

This tricks work both for ZWCAD+ and autoccad.

Mirror text works the same in ZWCAD+, with ZWCAD+ you can keep using familiar commands and save dwg file, find ZWCAD+ brief introduction from here:
