Reverses the from-to direction of line features.
You can view the orientation of line features by symbolizing line features with arrowheads.
Direction-dependent attributes, such as address ranges, are not flipped—only the geometry is flipped. For example, suppose a line feature has an LF-ADD attribute ('left from address') of 100 and an LT-ADD ('left-to address') of 198. These values will not change if the line is flipped.
When input is a feature layer with a selection, only selected features will be modified.
This tool modifies the input data. See Tools that modify or update the input data for more information and strategies to avoid undesired data changes.
