I got the paper that you need to use to iron on something that you print, but for text or even pictures you need to invert it. So I need to invert the text but haven't figured out how to do it in word, or Pages for that matter....

Anyone know how?

thanks!

1) Print
2) "Save as PDF..."
3) Open PDF using

Photoshop:

 4) select "Flip Canvas Horizontal" from Image->Rotate Canvas;

or

GraphicConverter:

 4) Select "Horiztonal" from Picture->Mirror;

5) Print

Actually, Preview can do this just as well. View -> Flip Horizontal.

I can do this straight from Word....

I've done it before. I'm not sure if it's a printer setting specific to my printer though. I am using a Epson CX5200.

Go to Print -> Print Settings
Click Advanced then you can select the Flip Horizontal radio button to do what you want.

Hope this helps...

Well I ended up switching it to a pdf and then using Photoshop, but I did just check within Word and you are right Jordan. I have an Epson R300, and when I go to Advanced under print settings I can select Mirror Image, which is the same as Flip. Never noticed that!

Thanks everyone for your help!
