what is the quickest and easiest way to reverse the direction of a plane element? I am creating an emitter and it shines the opposite way.. I've been mirroring the object and it works but I'm sure there must be a simpler way

Chris,

Use the Reverse Direction tool from the tool row to the right of the Measure tool...

Hi Thorsten,

This is now a pick option: attribute that can be set independently for different objects:

1

Just pick the object(s) whose Normals you wish to show, and check the box...
