    How can you flip a layer horizontally or vertically without flipping the whole canvas?

    That was dumb of me!
    Sorry for the lame post.

    I was in a hurry and read the help file on flip and it said
    “The Rotate Canvas commands let you rotate or flip an entire image. The commands do not work on individual layers or parts of layers, paths, or selection borders.”

    So I jumped to the conclusion it wasn’t possible.
    If I’d looked at the next help file I would have known better.
    Sorry for wasting your time.
