Is it possible to reflect an object in Illustrator for iPad? Mirroring locks the two objects together - but can't figure out a way to separate them. Is there a way to reflect and still have two idependant objects that aren't locked together - can be moved independently? Thanks if anyone has info / experience with this.

Object>Expand, then Ungroup. You'll have separate objects.

The Object menu is in the right-side panel. ~ Jane

Thank you Doug. Was referring to Illustrator App for iPad. The App version doesn't have the standard menus that the desktop version has.

Donnie, I was referring to the iPad version too! You mirror your objects, then go to the Object menu, the click Expand, then Ungroup. I did this on the iPad before I posted to you.
