Make DRAG + ALT available for other core modeling Features

Make DRAG + ALT available for other core modeling Features

1. Product Development / Engineering 


2. Creo Parametric 9


3. We all know you can "DRAG+SHIFT" an Extrude feature to a plane or geometry, and in addition referencing this into the feature. The Warp Feature (Stretch) has a "DRAG+ALT" function that matches the distance to the selected reference, but does not make a solid reference. It only copies the distance for use of your stretch.  This would be great to have in other core features as Extrude or Hole etc. 

4. Working with Windchill, and not being able to use external references in a assembly, now I have to measure the distance and use this value as a variable in the extrude feature of the part, to match the surfaces linig up.  


5. If I could make use of DRAG+ALT with the core feature, this would not set a (external) reference, I would not have break of the feature, and would spare me time using the workaround by measuring.
