Anyway, to change the flip go to the Job Setup and change the Flip Direction Between Sides from left to right to up and down.

Funny enough I am having a bit of a problem getting my head around it as well & I have been using it longer than you have
I actually went back to the old way of doing things to get some jobs completed & will come back to this once I have a bit more time, I have never had to rely on guesswork though & never had a botched job so maybe I was just lucky
Are you creating the grip models from scratch or are you buying the models and just trying to line them up?
Honestly I'm not sure I would use double sided machining for gun grips since they are different from left to right. Anyway that's you call.
As to what side you are working on, Vectric did put up a big "dummy your working on the back side" sign. Besides the material with an arrow on top or bottom icon at the top menu bar there's a big yellow border around the work area of the back/bottom side.
If you are using two models for the left/right (front/back) grip and are having trouble lining them up. Take one of the models and create a bounding vector and copy it to the other side. That should help.
As to the thin layer still showing, try raising the Preview Simulation Quality under the Toolpath menu option.
the cuts on the back need to correlate 100% with the fronts to look and fit right.

The front and back line up. You need to copy the outline vector to the back of the material.
This is a composite of front/back. Edges and holes line up perfectly. Aspire 9 is pretty slick with the two sided models.
