In my database, I have a bunch of parallel (in nature) polyline objects. Those lines are having the same direction of traffic flow.

The requirement of my project is to change the direction only of one side of these polylines.


My solution. What I am actually doing is a very manual and slow task. I am selecting each and every segment of one side into the selection and change the direction.

My problem. It is time-consuming and there are chances when I am not able to select each and every object.

So, maybe you guys have any kind of ideas?

    It's not clear what you're asking for here. Are you looking for a tool to reverse the line direction or are you looking for a quicker way to select the lines? – T_Bacon Oct 23 '18 at 7:12
  • @T_Bacon "Reverse Line Direction" is part of MapCAD, which is shipped with MapInfo. – CL. Oct 23 '18 at 10:39
  • You have not really given us any information that would allow us (or the computer) to determine which lines to select. – CL. Oct 23 '18 at 10:40
  • Thanks for your response, actually i am looking for a way to select one whole side of polyline(s) quicker. Yes, i know about "Reverse Line Direction" - MapCAD tool. Thanks. – Sandeep Kumar Thenua Oct 24 '18 at 10:20
  • What exactly do you mean with "one whole side"? – CL. Oct 24 '18 at 12:45
