Once you have PP’d a surface, you are supposed to be able to select another surface, double click on it and it then moves the same amount as your initial move. And indeed it often does. However, just as often it doesn’t. Sometimes it does but it moves it in the opposite direction (nothing to do with front and back faces). Sometimes it moves it a random amount. For me, it doesn’t seem to work predictably.
Where it works best is when you have a series of similar surfaces within a larger surface. But of course, it might actually then be quicker to select them all and use the Move tool instead.
Recently I tried making the rising steps of a staircase using PP. Obviously, all risers will be equal. So you PP the first one to give a rise of, say 200mm. Double click the next one and it (usually) rises to meet the first. Double click on it again and it will (sometimes) rise the same amount again. But this is where it might do what you expect or something seemingly quite random. Is there a reliable workflow I have failed to grasp?
