Artboard is a great way to manage and create a group of images/designs with all of them laying out on the table while individually editted.

 

My suggestion is to add the ability to flip individual artboard at a time, without flipping the whole canvas.

 

Because sometimes while I am sketching on one of the artboards, I need to flip the sketch constantly to check perspective/symmetry, etc. If flipping the whole canvas is the only option, I noticed that it can take minutes sometimes to complete the calculation, ending up stucking my workflow.

I assume you are referring to non-destructive View > Flip Horizontal which flips the view but not the file.

I tried several things to try to replicate your result -- 16 bit, blending modes, adjustment layers -- and couldn't manage to do it. The only item that did produce your effect was to choose the Crop tool and NOT commit.

If the Layers panel and the chosen Layer looks normal it may be time to Reset Preferences  (Preferences > General > Reset Preferences on Quit. Then restart Photoshop.

Actually, it happens whenever i use the artboard. If i start a new file with no artboard, the flip horizontal is ready to go. If threre's an artboard it's greyd out.

But thank you very much!

Yeah, I got the same thing - no artboard, View>Flip Horizontal happy and works all nice.

Add artboards, View>Flip Horizontal just not playing.
This is somewhat disagreeable and unsatisfactory I would warrant.

I guess it only works in non-artboard situations although I do believe I came across another set of circumstances that had the same effect.
Sadly, I cannot recollect what these were currently.

I've noticed that Photoshop disables the ability to flip the view when artboards are being used. I'm guessing this isn't properly implemented yet. It really should be.
