Flipped type on mirrored path

Apr 17, 2012 6:48 AM

When a path (quarter circle, or curve) with type is mirrored, the type then is backwards, or reverse reading. Is there a way to undo the flipped type after the mirror operation or even better, an option to prevent it before the mirror step?


I've looked at Adobe Illustrator Help and tried to figure it out on my own with no luck.


Any thoughts on this?

    Select just the path with the group select tool. Then mirror

    Not sure if this is what you mean but the only way I could do it was to first mirror the text on a staright line with the reflex tool and the curve it with a mesh or use the warp  feature and to get a perspective use the free distort effect  I guess it could also be done with the Free Transform tool.


    Once youy reflex the type you have the group them but you have to free distor only the reflexed version
