  2. If you want to end up with the original AND mirrored line choose Edit | Copy, Edit | Paste.
  3. Hold down the CTRL key.
  4. Drag the appropriate selection handle (small black square) to the opposite side of the shape.

If you want to order a part and it’s mirror image, use Comments To Machinist. For example, "Produce half of the quantity as mirror image." (Additional costs will apply.)
