Profile Tool- Rotate to Target never works, what am I doing wrong?

A few questions about the profile tool:

Is it possible to drag a section along a COS, based on a profile that is some distance away?

Rotate to Target and Slide to Target never work for me, I always get the error: 'invalid Profile Surface'.  What does this mean?

What does Touch Line Type refer to? It isn't documented.

 

I've made a screen cast to illustrate what I mean

 

Thanks in advance!

What are you trying to achieve? please copy and then manually move the section to where you expect it to be...I cannot tell what you are trying to achieve from your video...

I think the problem is the profile curve must be long enough to reach the target surface.  It can't stretch the curve to do so, it will just fail if the target surface is out of range.
