I wish to flip the board: ( Top compoents go to bottom, and bottom
components come up to top,  the wires should be flipped and linked to the
original positions, wire layers should be also changed as well.)  I have
spent more than a hour on it, but still have no circuitous way to do it.
It seems an impossible task in Protel. So I have to re-route the thousands
wires. Does any body know other software can do it? Maybe I could do a
export-flip-import game.

Thanks.

Jun

Jun,
Generally all that you can do in Protel are the flipping and turning you can
do
with a completed pwb with your hands. If you wish to move left to right and
right to left, while keeping the components on the top side, you'll need to
re-route.
