View flip upside down

Hi~ 

I'm looking for a way to quickly flip a canvas upside down (like the "Flip Horizontal" menu option) 

Tried to record an action with the Rotate View Tool setting it to 180 but the actions are not registered. 

It's hard to research on this because every results tells me how to rotate the image 180 not just the view. (even the virtual assistant i talked to is stomped)

 

Thanks!

Do you mean flip it vertically as in Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical?

@Otnaug 

One thing to note is that the two methods you listed: View > Flip Horizontal and Rotate tool > 180° are non-destructive.

 

The methods in Edit > Transform should not be used repeatedly.

 

I don't know of a way to "Flip Vertically" as a View setting, but you never know what our scripters can do unless they tell us. I've added the Scripting tag to your post just in case this can be done with scripting.

thanks! 
I was also really surprised that "rotate view tool" is excluded by the macro/action recorder.

Another surprise (to me) is that creating a Preset is not allowed for the Rotate View tool as it is for most other tools.

 

You might make a feature request by starting a new post and tagging it as "Ideas" instead of "Discussions" for the product developers to track. Clarify what's been said here across several posts.

Hi, @Otnaug  on the Action panel flyout menu, select "Allow Tools recording", then rotate the view with the hand. I just tried, and was able to record it, then play it successfully!

Oooo thanks, i think with this i'm getting close. Not sure what i'm doing wrong though, but the playback was successful for a few times then it starts to be unreliable --- i.e. i recorded a full 180 rotation, and it works, but maybe the 10th playback it starts to only rotate 145 or 160 or 45.

If you mean rotating, you could also do Edit > Transform > Rotate 180°

Unfortunately no, the Rotate View Tool specifically rotates only the view and not transform the image, which is what edit does. 

Thanks though~ but yea... this misunderstanding is exactly why it's pretty much impossible to find the answer~ it's a super subtle difference that only matters when the files is large with a hundred layers.

Thanks Jane and PE, made an idea post that's hopefully comprehensible enough to be useful.

Hi, the OP said why not earlier in his reply to Myra to see why this won't work. He wants a View setting, not a Transform setting.
