mirror entities and keep them on their original layers

Is the old Transform command the only way to mirror multiple entities at the same time and keep them on their original layers?

 

This is how I currently do it and how I've done it for ~20 years.

The old Dialog is confusing to newer users... Especially the old "Copy or move " then "Cancel" to get out of the command.

Hi @R_Newcomb,

 

It looks like the following two ER's cover the functionality you're looking for:

 

ER 7173526: Maintain original layers during Extract Body > Mirror.

ER 7511261: Mirror Geometry moves objects to work layer.

 

Regards, Ben

Is there a way for users to see what Enhancements are already requested?

 

I think I might have made this one ER 7511261, I know I did an IR many years ago on the subject when they 1st changed the CTRL-T shortcut from Transform to Move Object

Unfortunately not.  You can only review your own IRs that were converted to ERs.
