Mirroring displays a duplicate image as a reflection in Microsoft Word. You can use Word's picture effects to create the effect you want, whether you want to mirror an image at an angle or directly over the image. You can also display a full or half reflection and allow the reflection to touch or not touch the original image. This was added recently to ACR. You can also use a script to flip images in Bridge. ----- //Written by David M. Converse ©2018 Released under Apache 2.0 license as open source freeware.
Start with a preset then adjust the settings to what you exactly want. The above extreme settings give you the most ‘reflection’. Transparency – how opaque or solid the mirrored text is. 0% is solid 100% is invisible. Size – the size or extent of the mirrored text. 0% shows no mirror text at all. Blur – a fuzzy effect on the mirrored text.
0pt is sharp text. Distance – the distance between the bottom of the main text and the start of the reflected text. The right-hand pane lets you play with the settings and see a live preview of the results. You can combine reflection with other text effects like Shadow.
Reverse vertically Sadly there’s no simple equivalent for vertically reversed text but it’s not a lot harder. All you have to do is put the text in a Text Box, then you get the 3D Rotation option necessary.
Go to Insert Text Box and choose a simple preset. Sadly there’s no ‘blank’ text box preset.
To get rid of the box lines go to the Format Shape pane, Shape Options Fill & Line Line and choose No Line. Type some text in in the text box and format it just like any other text. Resize the text box with the handles in each corner so the text fits within the box. In the Format Shape pane, Text Options, Text Effects then scroll down to 3-D Rotation (an option missing from text formatting outside a text box). Change the X Rotation value to 180° and lo!
The text flips! This effect applies to all the text inside the text box. Both effects together The smarties among you will have figured out that you can combine both effects into one. Why you’d want to do such an unreadable thing is an entirely separate question.
Format the text within a text box then go to Format Shape Text Options. Change both Reflection and 3-D Rotation to suit. There’s an alternative way to do the reflection. Instead of reflecting the text inside the text box, you can mirror the entire text box. Here’s an example with the text box frame visible so you can see the difference. The reflected text is outside the text box frame.
For text only, this makes little difference but add some other elements in the text box like images to see how mirroring the entire text box is worth keeping in mind. Mirror vertically Word only supports horizontal or X axis mirroring directly. We can’t see any way to mirror vertically somewhat like this. The only workaround is to make a text box with the same text, rotate 180° on the X axis and position next to the original text.
