Default curve upside down?

Hi. I've created a curve and duplicated it to get a mirrored one. When I extract them they dont extract at the same direction. How do you change that?

Well, either you can mirror one over the X/Z plane (without making a copy), or just move one up or down.

tried freeze transormations before extracting but no difference. Even tried to duplicate one and then rotate it 180 degress and then freeze transofmrations, but still they get extracted differently... ?

duplicate it with a -1 scale in the x direction and then freeze transforms.
