Macro for independent flipping of multiple objects from left to right without altering their orientation

I posted a similar question around a year ago and one member kindly wrote a macro for me.  The problem is it seems to flip every element on the page or document, when when you select just one element.

Anyhow, to explain it better I need a macro that will flip objects from left to right/right to left but which leaves the objects facing the same way as they started.  A perfect example is a clockface -  I'd need the 3 to move to where the 9 normally is and vice versa, but without the two numbers mirroring so that they aren't back to front.  This needs to happen with multiple objects at the same time.  Unless I've missed something I can't see this feature in X7.  So basically, it's the flip feature without mirroring.

I use X7 and sometimes CD12.

Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

  • Hi Mek,

    I've enclosed an attachment labelled 'Chord EXamples 1' .  I've saved it from Corel Draw 12, which I've found pretty much all the later versions are able to load.  I don't have CD X5 and I'm not sure

    which version to save it from CDX7 (version 15?).  Anyhow, hopefully this will go you something to work with.  Basically, I need all the elements in each chord box reversed for a left handed musician.

    It doesn't actually matter where the individual chord boxes are on the page as I can reposition them, if this helps?  If you have trouble loading this file, let me know and I'll try another version.

    Also, I don't know if macros written on X5 would work on X7 (CD12 would be fine too).

    best wishes,
