Reverse skins?? (Scaling in VHE)

Reverse skins?? (Scaling in VHE)

I made a PAINT image of nothing but squares imposed on each other so I could get a sense of scales in VHE. I used Wally to turn it into a .wad file and then added it to my ever growing list of organized .wad files.

It looked great and taught me that those little green men are ~24 pixels high. However, the scale chart I created as a skin and pasted to a temporary brush was backwards! I thought "What did I do wrong?" But then again a skin for a large door in this map was pasted backwards as well.

Some skins paste to the brush as seen in the .wad image (preview) while others paste reversed. What gives?

SEEN IN PREVIEW: 123
PASTED IN MAP: 321

Could you please post a screenshot of the problem? I don't see how it can reverse the texture...
You can rotate the texture using the Texture Application but I don't think you can mirror it or even reverse it...
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Wow, weird... I have no idea what this is actually.
Try fitting the texture to the face:
Open the Texture Application tool (shift+A)
Select the face on which this texture is
Press Fit

If this doesn't work, you'll have to wait for someone else, because I really have no idea why this occurred.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
