We study a special combination of the compact directions of the spacetime (compactified on tori) and the worldsheet parity transformed of these directions. The transformations that change the compact part of the spacetime to this combination, are more general than the T-duality transformations. Many properties of this combination and also of the corresponding worldsheet fermions are studied. By using the boundary state formalism, we study the effects of the above transformations to D-branes. For the special cases the resulted branes reduce to the known mixed branes, or reduce to the modified mixed branes.
