I have a UV unwrapped object that I want one part of to show its texture flipped horizontally, but I can't seem to find a way to do this other than flipping the normals, but I'd prefer not to do that as it seems to mess up other things. Any ideas?

Select all in UV Edit window and type SX-1 and enter

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. I wasn't aware that you could use negative numbers for scaling. Does that work on meshes too? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Yes - scaling to -1 is common for flipping a selection, it also works in other areas - graph editor, dopesheet, node editor, movie clip, sequencer... $\endgroup$
