Opposite Hand Versions

Lists the components you are creating an opposite-hand version for.

Format for saving Specifies how to save the opposite-hand versions. Select one to apply to all listed components:
Create new derived configuration in existing files
Saves the opposite-hand version as a new derived configuration in the existing component file.
Create new files
Saves the opposite-hand version in a new component file.
Naming convention Specifies how to name the new configuration or file. Select one:
Add Prefix
Adds specified text before the existing name. Type the text in the box below (default is Mirror). A preview appears in the second box below.
Add Suffix
Adds specified text after the existing name. Type the text in the box below (default is Mirror). A preview appears in the second box below.
Custom
Uses specified text as the new name. Type the text in the second box below.
The following additional options are available if you select Create new file above.
Opens the Choose File dialog box, where you can browse and select an existing component file to be replaced by the new opposite-hand component file.
Break link for mirrored parts Breaks references between the new opposite-hand component file and the seed component file, so that changes you make in the seed component do not affect the opposite-hand version. When this option is cleared, references are maintained, so changes you make in the seed component propagate to the opposite-hand version.
