Mirroring or flipping marker symbol

Is there a way I can flip a character symbol in ArcView v9.1? It seems that you can only rotate character marker symbol left to write but you cannot mirror or flip like you can do in Paint. Any suggestion will be appreciated.


Mapping Center Answer:

Sorry, there's no way to do that within ArcMap. My suggestion would be to copy the marker and paste it into a graphics package and flip it, then save it as an EMF file that you can bring back into ArcMap as a picture marker symbol.
