Exactly my point!
"flips the normal" is the explanation, i.e. denoting/naming the command "flips the normal/direction" is more informative than the current denomination.
it does not work on lines...

But there's nothing stopping you or anyone else doing a hack that makes line/curve direction flippi'n work, I assume?
And incorporate it into this "reversed shape"-command.
This way we would get a one-stop-shop for all flippi'ns! ;)

No problem, I'll make a feature request so it doesn't fall between chairs.

From realthunders github page:
.
Flip normal of plane/surface + flip direction of line/curve
Creation mode: select plane/surface or line/curve, now an arrow in the 3D-viewport shows its current normal orientation. Clicking on the "flip-button" performs the "flip" and the arrow in the 3D-viewport shows its new orientation. The "flip" shall be visible in the tree as separate icon just below what was "flipped". Hovering over the icon shall highlight the original plane/surface or line/curve in the tree and in the 3D-viewport.

It would be nice of you if you could edit the headline to read: "An icon for reversed shape / flip normal or direction"
