Flip Multiple DNA Sequences

How do I simultaneously flip multiple DNA sequence files in a collection?

Select the Sequence Files to Flip

Select multiple files in the collection list using Shift-click or Ctrl-click (Windows) / Cmd-click (macOS). To select all of the files, click Edit  Select All.

Flip the Selected DNA Sequences
