How are Front and Back of Lots determined??

I am not sure how CE determines how the front, side and back of lots are determined?? I have a few scenarios.

1. If you have a lot that is bounded by roads on the front and back, it somehow determines what the front is. It seems to be the direction it is drawn, but not certain. I am thinking of cases where the back road may be a lane, which would have a smaller width, but I want to force the front to be along the major road. Is this possible?

2. If I have a block of lots that is surrounded by roads (see the image with 4 lots), the two end lots have the front along the west and east roads. Is there a way to force them all to the north road??


3. If I have static parcels, I see that by drawing counterclockwise, the front of lot is at the top, and clockwise at the bottom. However, this needs to be done outside of CE, and not always done this way. Is there a way to flip the lot in CE, or reverse the direction of the road alignment to fix this??
