mirror sketch entities

is there anyway to mirror sketch entities, like in solidworks?

While in sketch, place a centerline (not an axis). These are in the line flyout. These can be used as symmetry lines for mirroring in sketch mode, as well as construction lines for dimensioning to... they have a lot of uses.

yeah i know all about the symmetry constraint, but in solidowrks you can just draw half the sketch, put a centerline, then click the entities on one side and they appear on the other with the symmetry constraint already there. it saves a lot of time, and i was wondering if it's available in wildfire.

Yes. Place the centerline... dimension it as needed. Select the entities you want mirrored, and then the centerline you placed. They will mirror and have a symmetry constraint on them.

Forgot the mention, you have to chooese the "mirror" tool first. It will be greyed out until you place a centerline, but once the centerline is there the command shows up.
