Workaround for flipping layout parts

Does anybody know an usable workaround for  flipping parts of a layout?

My current design for a customer was ready, but the customer forgot to tell me that for cooling reasons some parts with Fets, planes, traces have to be flipped from top to buttom.

I found no simple workaround to do this in PADS. So my working solution is to take the design translate into Altium designer, mark the respective parts in the design and flip it with one mouse-click. Then convert the design back to PADS, ready :-)

To be honest this method can not be a working solution for everybody, so please Mentor don't drop behind even cheaper SW and make a solution work.

 

Best regards
