The title should say it all.

I just discovered and started using Adobe Fresco today. after a few hours it seems this will be my new favourite art program!
I am working on vectorizing work imported from Autodesk Sketchbook, drawn using "mirrors". To trace eveeything simply won't be precise enough.

Thanks.

Sorry, I was a bit too much in a hurry asking. After having worked with Fresco for a few more hours, I sorted out the problem myself.You select the layer you want to duplicate+mirror, then mask the content, duplicate the same content and click on the mirroring arrow symbols in the top right corner of the screen. Drag the mirrored copy to its correct position.Terminate the process by clicking the Finish button on the same place.

This answer does not make much sense. Can you please clarify a bit more how you figured this out?

I have no idea what Adobe is thinking leaving an easy mirroring function out, it's a deal breaker for many projects being done in Fresco.

Mirroring can be performed through copying a layer and pasting its contents onto a separate layer the icons on the upper right corner allow the content to be flipped either horizontally or vertically producing a mirror image the items can be also rotated using the nodes to achieve a custom rotation. See the photo of the example below.
