Reversing Focuser Direction in Software

HI,

I just got my Rigel nStep USB focuser working under Ekos. Everything's working okay except the focuser direction is the opposite of what it should be. When I press the focus in button, the focuser moves out, and vice versa.
My question: Is there a way in software to reverse the direction of travel for so that the focuser moves in the proper direction? (focus in shortens the focus tube, focus out lengthens it.)

If it matters, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 running Astroberry.

I don't use the controller myself but mine has a setting in the INDI control Panel to swap direction. Some use the original drivers to set this before using INDI

This is the same for me too, it depends on which side of the focuser your motor is on, the controls are correct if your motor is on the find focus side, if on the coarse focus side then you have to enable the “reverse direction” in the INdI driver label....no problem.....
