Organize and Select holes just like Powermill

I've already used the Powermill a lot.
I chose Fusion because it was much quicker and easier to program...

However, the drilling tool has been bothering me a little....

In Powermill, you selected the holes you wanted to make and it created a list by their Ø....

In Fusion I need to select it according to its Diameter.
It doesn't give me the list of diameters to filter 

- Is there any way to do something similar or is this not possible?
- Is it possible to create limits on the Piece/Block and it not advance beyond that?

Have you checked out the Hole Recognition tool, it's part of the Machining Extension?

I didn't know about this option, I'll check it out now!

Is it possible to limit an area to drilling? For example:
My piece is bigger than the machine's strokes, and I intend to do it in parts (Divide)

I wanted to limit the block to half the piece and only drill the holes that are in the block.

You can do so when you have "Select Same Diameter" enabled, as it now gives you a "Containment Boundary" which allows for selection of a sketch for constraining purposes:
