Building a better Fledermaus-trap

Oh, this is too funny... I've been chuckling for the last ten minutes at my own ignorance.

I've been all wound-up about getting these T-shirt transfers printed up for the Macbeth people, right?

I needed to be able to flip the text (so that the words wouldn't show backwards once the transfer was applied)... but couldn't import either the original file or a PDF into GIMP (I should easily be able to do the latter, at least). So I got Adobe 4.05 from work (I had been using 3.0), installed it, restarted, played around with it, created a new PDF...

...and it still didn't work.

In desperation, I did a printscreen (I was hoping not to have to do that... I had the impression that doing so might create an entire white background behind the text*), saved it as a bmp, popped it into GIMP, flipped it, opened the package and...

...discovered that my PRINTER will FLIP text AUTOMAGICALLY.

I am such a Dorkermaus!! ; P

* Not the case. Which I also would have discovered upon opening the package : P
