Can someone please tell me the easiest method [step-by-step] for mirroring an object on the iPad? I know you can flip axis, but I need some other way, if possible.
Have you tried the scale tool? Grab a control handle and drag it to -1.00 as a scale factor and you get a mirror image. If you want it to be a copy, copy the original before you start, and paste in place after.
If you have trouble snapping to -1.00 you can type it in afterwards.
If you know the axis orientation of an object, “flip along” is the easiest.
It would be cool if the scale tool could copy with CTRL, but it is already used for centering the scale action.
Just give it a copy function like the move and rotate tools. I second this.
Of course. In iPad, CTRL makes no sense… It should be an extra sub tool.
