    Then, we can either create a new document or opening an existing one
    .
    There are other VisiHow videos on how to do that. In this video, a document has already been opened. Actually, there are several layers in the document.

    We need to ensure that the layer we would like to flip is the one we've selected
    .
    It should be highlighted in blue at the right-hand side.

    We make sure that the selected layer is not locked
    .
    This is indicated by the padlock. Our object should be free to be manipulated.
