I have an existing .gpx tracks file that I want to reverse the travel direction. How do I do this?

When I try reverse the direction through the edit feature and clicking on the reverse direction the software program also redraws the route and alters the existing track. Is there a way to reverse the travel direction on the .gpx file without altering the track?

    Yes, I am aware there is an inverter. When I invert the route the my drive software redraws/reroutes portions of the track.

    Then when you try to edit the redrawn track back to the original the my drive software seems to continue to try and reroute and backtrack in a series of complex loops.

    After using the inverter, part of the track is on the original and part of it is redrawn. The original track is shown in dark blue and the redrawn track appears in light blue.

    You have to save it again to find the dark blue

    light blue it's a route that allows you to modify it
    dark blue it's a gpx

    when you save it again it saves it as the redrawn light blue track and not the original

    When I save, it saves as the redrawn light blue instead of the original dark blue
