I am a longtime Proe Users, but new to Creo 2. I am trying to create an assembly constraint that will use the center plane of a sub-assembly and keep the sub-assembly symmetrically centered between 2 faces. I see a coplanar constraint but cannot figure out how to use it, it doesn't allow me to select faces or planes??? Is this the correct constraint to do what I'm trying to accomplish? I know I can do this with a sketch and plane but I have to do several of these and wanted to make it simpler if possible.

My initial thought to locate this subassembly was to create a saved analysis measurement in the top assembly between the two faces, and then assemble the subassembly using the plane in the subassembly offset from one of the two faces. Once this has been done, you could create an assembly level relationship so that the distance that the assembly is offset from the face was half of the distance of the saved analysis feature.
