Any tricks for using mirrored bodies?

Are there any tricks for making mirrored bodies more usable in SW?  Here's my problems.


I've got a part that is symmetric in X and Y.  I drew 1/4 and then mirrored twice.  

      If I add fasteners using a pattern driven pattern, it only works if I select one of the holes in the original quadrant, and then, it only patterns the holes in that original quadrant.

       When dimensioning this part, the hole wizard thinks I only have 2 holes instead of 8.




I have another part that is a mirror.  The history tree for the part is "insert body", "mirror", "delete body."

      When I use the hole callout, it doesn't recognize a threaded hole.  




I'm sure these are well documented problems.  I'm hoping there are some "workflows" to improve this behavior.
