I need to flip a text document for use on an iron on transfer. I am using the Writer option on a PC. I am sorry but I'm not sure what version of OL I have. I know about the "Format" and "Flip" how ever, when I choose this, I don't have the OPTION to choose it. In other words, going to "Format" and then scrolling down to "Flip", the rotate vertically, rotate horizontally remains GRAY and it not available to choose. I have tried selecting all and trying to choose it but it remains in the gray. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Export to .pdf, -- open the .pdf in GIMP|Photoshop|whatever and transform every page with something like →Transform→flip vertical

Thanks for the tip but this did not do what I wanted. I need it to be in a "Mirror" style so it prints the words backwards.

Nonsense, if you want an iron on transfer you have also to flip every char!

You could also use a website like to flip your text upside down. There's a lot of websites like this if you google "upside down text".

Look in the properties of your printer. Most have a mirror option there.
