Hi !

Here is a workaround it's not perfect but could help you.

Select the lights you want to duplicate, place a locator to be the pivot of your rotation (be sure that you had enabled parent in place in the preferences in "layout").Parent all your light to this locator then select all the lights and the locator and copy past, this way the new light will be parented to the new locator.Just rotates the new locator in Y to 180.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.
