    Default Mirrored Text is backwards

    What variable sets the text to read correctly when mirrored. Currently all text reads backwards when mirrored. Please advise. Civil3D, 2013

    Never Mind; Found it, "MIRRTEXT" set to zero (0) mirrors text readable.

    MIRRTEXT is the system variable IIRC

    Thanks for responding. I receive the following at the command line: "Command: IIRC Unknown command "IIRC". Press F1 for help." MIRRTEXT works great.

    Hello Darren,
    (lol) I believe cadtag meant "MIRRTEXT is the system variable [if I recall correctly]"
    Not that IIRC is a variable.

    Sounds like you got it!

    Thanks for the clarification. I am not too familiar with text style abbreviations. I know it saves time while typing but it adds confusion to those us like me. Then it ultimately takes more time to explain than it would if it had been spelled out originally.
