I have a forming tool used for punching grips on stair treads. When I insert the forming tool into a sheet metal part, the tool is inversed from the direction I want it, Picture0002.png

 

so I click flip tool. When the tool flips, you can see that the insertion face also changes to the face on the other side of the sheet metal.

Therefore the forming tool is half buried in the sheet metal. What can I do to change this? I have used this same forming tool before, and it worked fine. I edited it this morning, and when I tried to use it again, this is what happened.
