Composite Orientation Flip

It would be nice to have an option to flip the composites Outside / Inside face, without the need to reorder manually every skin.

No need to re-order ever skin.

Just drag the skin you want to the position you want.

Or have I mis-understood what you want?

I want to reorder every skin so the outside face to be inside, and to keep the order of skins but inverse. When you have multiple skins to reorder it can be time consuming. Often beginner users set up the composites not considering the outside skin to be correct, so this could save time to reorder/flip every skin with one click.

Another option could be to use Edit/Reference line and plane/Modify wall reference line and plane command. There you have the option to mirror walls in place:

You can also check to edit the reference line location to stay in the same place:

And sure you can get this feature ( Modify Wall Reference Line ) as a toolbar icon so that reduces steps.

I mapped it to a key combo to be even faster

It is not that benedek wants to flip the walls in plan (although that does solve the problem of the walls being created inside out).

It seems he wants to adjust the actual composite so it is created commencing with the true outside skin.

And not just swapping the 2 outer skins as I first thought, but re-arranging all of the composite skins in reverse order.

So I think his wish is that - to reverse all composite skins with one mouse click.

Yes Barry you are right! I will edit the wish description to avoid misunderstanding.
