Re: Flip around X or Y axis?


Just wanted to point out that if there shall be flipping about arbitrary axises, some kind of indication of how the board is currently flipped would be nice.

Maybe axis indication or whatever.

I have some RL stuff going on right now so I can't check the flip
features. One thought about them from the comments made is whether it
would be worth having the option of flipping about either axis.

The axis currently used for the flipping can stay as it is now but we
would have the option of flipping about the other axis. Another (less
desirable?) option would be to have a preference setting to set which
axis is used for flipping items.
