Most components of the Mirror dialog box are identical to those in the Shift dialog box. When "Mirror" is selected, you may change the arc cutting direction by checking the "G02<-->G03" checkbox, and switch cutter diameter compensation between right and left by checking the "G41<-->G42" checkbox.

All of the above commands may by processed throughout all of the file, or a specified part of the file by using the "From" and "To" fields.
