Cannot Mirror a Bend in Inventor LT

by design or someting I've broken?

I'm learning [hahaha ... I wish] Inventor 2014 LT and have run into a problem in a throw-away project I"m working on.


A simple example is to create a piece of 3x5x.125 flat bar, add a sketch giving you a bend line and bend the end of it. Now try to mirror the whole thing giving you a 3x10x.125 flat bar bent on both ends.  

FWIW: My project isn't this simple - I know I can just make the FB and bend both ends ... this is an example of mirroring a bend not working.


Thanks in advance ...

I'm not familiar with LT, but are there options to mirror the entire Solid Body or Feature.

If so, the Solid Body should work (it is not the default).

Thank you,  I was sure I tried that yesterday but perhaps not.  It works today.
