I'm using Preview to add some speech bubbles to a picture. The default speech bubble assumes the speaker is below and to the left. Can I change where the speech is coming from?

You can drag the text bubble bounding box (the blue dots that you would use to resize the bubble) over to the other side.

This effectively over-"resizes" the bubble so it is mirrored.


Just drag the cursor starting from the direction where you want the point to be.


You can simply drag the corner selection (the round dot) to the other side
