Hope I can make this make sense.
Could not find this topic under several search criteria so my apologies if this is a redundant question.
If I have a cube say 4x4x4 and wish to pull one side to 6, I know I can grab the face, begin pull and type 2.
I know I can also use the measuring tool, measure out to 6 from the opposite face and set a guide point. This is OK only now I have to delete it later. 2 extra steps.
Can I grab the face and somehow choose a different starting reference for the measurement such as the opposite face and type 6 to get the same results as above?
