How to flip frame horizontal

Is it possible to flip the frame relative to vertical line directly without moving?

Depends on how you got to where you are now, but try this....

Move the "transform origin" of the shape to the vertical line

Then in the transform panel change the number in the Rotation field to its "negative" equivalent

R.I.P

"transform origin"

It's a pity that Transform origin is not used for all "transform" operations - for example, to indicate the axis according to which the flip should be performed.

By the way, the icon for Flip is incorrect - it does not correspond to the operation as performed in Affinity, because it flips according to the center of the object, not according to the right edge, as indicated on the icon.

I want to flip the frame horizontal as shown by the red arrow. Cannot find how to do this.

Of course not ideal, but:

Nest (temporarily) the arrow in the line.
Flip the line.
Un-nest.     

(if the vert line is a guide, then you will actually need to draw the line element)

Genuinely curious…How would you design an icon to represent the flip?

Using more space I would go for something like the one on the left, or the right. Problem with these are that the different colours don't really say "before/after" and then there is the problem with the dashed centre lines not being easy to see at tiny sizes.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

The icon used would be perfectly fine (it is understandable enough) if the application could perform "this depicted" function. It's just weird if the Flip function can't perform the operation/transformation shown by its icon. In doing so, it would be sufficient for the Flip operation to be performed according to the Transform origin, and when it is placed to the right edge, it will then be flipped according to the right side - that is, exactly what the icon indicates and the OP requests.

This is resolved in the case of rotation icons, where the direction of the operation is indicated by an arrow (although the visibility of the arrow is not optimal). It should therefore also be used for Flip operations.

For example this (with visible arrow in Rotate icon).

Just like the Rotate icons, where the original object is partially covered by the rotated object, the Flip icons also partially cover the original object.
