Are there no Flip Controls that will mirror an object about a horizontal axis? (ie. I am working in an elevation view and want the ability to mirror about the main Reference Plain) It doesn't seem right that the controls would only apply in two dimensions.

Not sure what you are talking about. Is it a family "flip" controll. If so you can flip it in both directions.

No, you only has the "Control" button in a family in a "Plan View", in "Elevation or Section" the Control Button isn't allowed...

That is true that you can't see the flip controll in elevation but it still works. Just right click and you still get the option to flip hand or flip face..Like in windows and doors..

Right clicking to flip hand or flip facing is just fine... if you are in the family editor. It, however, is useless in a project. Yeah, I could just make seperate families that handle each instance, but that completely defeats the purpose of what I am trying to do. A vertical flip control is definitely on my wishlist- that, and the ability to add an obliquing angle to dimensions so they don't look like curse in 3d views.

It's kind of a lengthy workaround, but you could mirror across the axis you want in the family editor and then apply the same dimension control parameters to each half.  Then you could add a yes/no visibility control to each side...it wouldn't be as user-friendly as a flip control but you could still switch sides pretty easily in a model without having to load 4 families.
