Flipping (rotating) letters

My Writer document features Western Cattle Brands, many of which use “flipped” lettering i.e. “P” flipped. How do I accomplish this in LibreOffice? “B” is another frequently flipped letter.

If it helps you can try these,

choose the letter you want to flip and from menu FormatCharacterPositionRotation/Scaling and select the degrees you want. Unfortunately I can’t see 180 degrees which would flip the letter upside down.

In the Libreoffice help page i found this solution,

You can only rotate text that is contained in a drawing object.

  1. Choose ViewToolbarsDrawing to open the Drawing toolbar.
  2. Select the Text icon
  3. Drag in your document to draw the text object, and then type your text.
  4. Click outside of the object, then click the text you entered. Click the Rotate icon on the Drawing Object Properties toolbar.
  5. Drag one of the corner handles of the text object.

You can also right-click the text object, choose Position and Size, click the Rotation tab, and then enter a rotation angle or a new position for the object.

Also you can see these answers to a similar question.

Rotating by 180° would be equivalent to subsequent flips “horizontally” and “vertically”.

I don’t think there is an easy way. You may have a look into the attached. ask78093_WordWithFlippedLetter_1.odt
