I just did a test and flipping rotated items definitely works.

yes, rotated objects can be flipped – but is it really sane behaviour that they flip around a rotated axes?
i would expect the axes to stay horizontally/vertically.

This is how flipping items has always worked. The way of flipping items you propose is slightly different : if using this way, the horizontal/vertical flipping state would have to stop being an item property. That would also requires some changes in the UI : the flip buttons would have to be switched to push buttons. Another drawback : changing this behavior would break existing documents.

ok, thanks utnik for catching the detail!

personally, i tend to think that flipping around the rotated axes is not what the user wants.

and i also think that the rotation should not be a property, but an action...

since the feature works as designed i'll close this ticket... and open a new asking for a "real" flipping
