I assume it is similar to Gmax so I>was hoping someone here had a clue.It's exactly the same...If E-Mesh, select all polygons and click on the "Flip Normals" button on the rollout.If E-Poly, select all ELEMENTS and click on the "Flip Normals" button on the rollout.

>Thanks Bill, guess Gmax and 3DSmax are a bit different after>all since I see no "flip normals" on the drop down, BUT, I>wasn't looking for "normals" before so that helped, thanks!Don't look in the "Top Bar Menu" for this! You won't find it... Use the rollout menus on the right side of the screen...The "rollouts" are virtually identical.In E-Mesh mode, select Polygon sub-level, select all polys, check off the "Show Normals", now......scroll down - down - down - down - all the way to "Surface Properties" In that sub-rollout you will see a big, honking "button" cleverly labeled "Flip" ;)In E-Poly mode, select the Element sub-level, select Element(s) as desired, then scroll down - down - down - to the "Edit Elements" sub-rollout, click once on the "Flip" button.
