Increase the method to positioning an hole selecting an existing hole.

Wish I had years ago and still need badly.  To expand a bit what I'd like to see is select an existing hole, input a distance an axis to pattern the hole parallel to.  The hole selection would dictate the face/plane the hole gets created on.  We can't do just a pattern as we want the hole to be another size.  Currently we have to create a sketch w/ points then create hole feature 1, then share the sketch and create hole feature 2.  Alternatively we can create sketch 1, generate hole 1, create sketch 2 w/ projected center from #1 and establsh 2nd hole location and size.
