I am sure this worked in the past...

reproduce: Draw some Lines / Arrows + a text, group everything and try to mirror this the elements alone can be mirrored

Version: Build-ID: 5.3.7-4 CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Linux 4.12; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: gtk3; Layout-Engine: neu; Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.utf8); Calc: group

Yes you can do this but first you must convert the text - see answer in this post.

Hmm even if I do not Like Visio this much, the default behavior of visio here is much saner... it would first allow mirroring without convert to polygons (which means loosing the ability to edit), further it would place the text object to the correct mirrored position inside the mirrord group, plus it would not mirror the text (if it was readable before, it will be still readable)
