Copy/Create and edge at numericaly specified place

Status: Gathering Support

It would be nice if we had the option to duplicate an edge or edge-loop with params to specify an exact distance from the source/selected edge/vertex so geometry could be divided at exact locations as required.  We can currently "move" edges accurately via type-in dialogs, but we can't tell Max to create a copy (or a new edge) x-units away from a currently selected edge/vertex.

This would need to go hand in hand with Panning the rollouts with MMB, otherwise you'd easily change the spinner values by accident while scrolling Command Panel/Material Editor contents.
