Creating a mirror image copy of a feature

The Mirror Features tool creates a mirror image copy of selected features on the other side of a line you create. For example, you can create houses in a housing development where houses are mirror images of those on the opposite side of the street. In the graphic below, the house polygon on the left side of the line (representing the street) is selected. The house polygon on the right is the resulting mirrored feature.
