You can find the flip options under:    Image > Arrange > Flip [vertical/horizontal]

Hi there

Is it possible that perhaps you have drawn a shape and the shape has "focus"? If so, the command will operate on the shape and not the image.

when the image on the canvas has no selection, the option to flip is greyed out. So i select the entire image and i can now press the flip, but it doesnt work. :( will send screenshot

THANK you, David@ I've been looking for the Flip feature and couldn't find it in any place where I thought it made sense for it to be. I even tried searching the Help file in Snagit and the online help. NOTHING!

Most other programs I know put flip under or next to rotate because that's where you'd expect to find it.  It's so closely related that that is where your mindset is.
