hello, somebody can tell me how to write a word, a letter in reverse / mirror? to explain a word like the Gucci G logo, the first found on google images (google images search for Gucci).
thanks

One way to do it would be to open a new draw document and type in the letter you want using the enter text button to give you a text box containing the letter.
Select the text box, right click and select position and size.
Select the rotation tab and enter 180 in the angle.
right click the text box again and convert to bit map then copy and paste to your writer document.

May well be a better way but this was the first thing to come to mind and it worked

Just realised you can also do the same thing using the draw functions in writer but only works for C as it is not a flip but a rotate.
For something like a B you would need to use draw, as above, but don't rotate before converting to bit map. You can then flip it either in draw or writer

Install a mirror font, e.g. PR Mirror Font:

Also Google for Times Mirror font.
