About flipping lines
When you modify a line by trimming or extending it, the line is automatically trimmed or extended from its last . If you want to trim or extend a line from the first vertex instead of the last, you can use the Flip command. The Flip command reverses the direction of a line so that the last vertex of the becomes the first.
How to flip lines
- Click the Current Task dropdown arrow and click Modify Feature.
- Click the Edit tool .
- Click the line whose direction you want to change.
- Right-click any part of the sketch and click Flip.
The sketch becomes inverted (the first vertex becomes the last, marked in red).
- When you are finished modifying the line, right-click any part of the sketch and click Finish Sketch.
