Labels print out backwards

When I print from yEd on my system, all the labels are printed backwards (mirrorred).  The start position is correct for L-to-R text, but the text is flipped and printed R-to-L.  (I'll attach a scan once I figure out how to upload files here.)

Any ideas where to start with this?

OK, I give up... how do I upload a scanned image (and the original graphml file, for that matter)?

As a first step, please try running yEd on Oracle JDK (available here) instead of OpenJDK. (Personally, I prefer the *.tar.gz version because it is the least hassle to install.)
