The Mirror Tool will mirror all the selected handles about a horizontal or vertical axis passing through the mouse cursor.

  • Horizontal : Horizontal axis mirror.
  • Vertical : Vertical axis mirror.


For example, to mirror a spline horizontally:

  • select the Mirror Tool, either by clicking in the toolbox or hitting AltM
  • check "Horizontal" in the Tool Options Panel
  • select the Spline Layer
  • select all handles in the spline by hitting ControlA
  • drag one of the selected handles a little

As soon as you start dragging, the handles will all flip about a vertical axis passing through the duck you're dragging. You will be able to drag the handles around, but the motion will be constrained to only move left and right.
