# Altium, it is possible to mirror the silk screen?

I am trying to build a simple PCB at home. It is a single layer PCB, and I would like to transfer the silk screen on the back side, mirrored. But for that, I need to mirror text, etc.

To design the PCB, I place components on my top layer from the library, and they already have the silkscreen on the top layer.

It is possible to do something like cut and paste, mirroring the art?

• Do you mean "readable when I turn the board over"? Every PCB design tool I've used handles mirroring when placed on the back layers automatically. This video claims to describe cut-and-paste: youtube.com/watch?v=7Ic0Tq-i6gg – pjc50 Jan 1 '14 at 18:24
• I think that to simply mirror all the silkscreen does not works, because components will be on the other side, like a book. I need to keep rectagles in place, but mirror designator text, labels, etc. – Javier Loureiro Jan 1 '14 at 18:33
• Copy the top silk and paste it on the bottom silk layer? – dext0rb Jan 1 '14 at 19:37

• Great explanation. @JavierLoureiro If this solved your question, it's only polite to properly accept it. – Adam Head Dec 19 '14 at 19:43
