I have a question and without a lot of silly answers from others I thougtht I would just ask you since you are the Guru in my eyes. I just got feedback from the planning dept. on a project that I am working on and it brought up a question that I have not had a chance to make this type of change in CA as of yet. I have created a floor plan for an attached guest house but not I need to reflect the plan so the entrance is on the opposite side. How do I take everything that I have on the addition and flip it without doing the whole plan itself? I am at a loss as I have the perfect plan just want to flip the addition.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Hey Chris, I haven’t had to do that myself, but I’m thinking your best bet is to very carefully draw a polyline that perfectly encloses just the addition, select the polyline and then WITH THE POLYLINE SELECTED, activate the appropriate Edit Area tool and copy, reflect, and then optionally paste/hold position to replace the original stuff (might be best to carefully delete that stuff one item at a time just to be safe). Will probably still require some cleanup though.
Thanks Michael. What I did is similar. I ended up turning all the layers off except for the main layer walls and then converting it to a cad detail and flipping it so I have the same wall layout. I then deleted all my walls of the addition and just retraced them over the cad detail. I could not figure any other way then that. Still saved me some time but looks as if I have other problems none related to Chief... Thanks again for your answer as you are the GoTo Guru.
