Enhance the paste with pattern dialog box

Enhance the paste with pattern dialog box so that one could copy a feature, set the offsets in the dialog box.

Have a button to paste with pattern the pre-copied feature inside the dialog box and another button to perform the newly created features upon closing the dialog box.

I'll sneak another one in here with this.

A Reverse Order tick box to reverse the order of the pattern.

For me primarily this would be useful for move points to back yourself out of a tight spot.

Would also be useful measuring a grid of holes, so rather than jumping back to the first in the row it would do the second row in revers order.

In what way would that differ from the already existing "Flip Feature Order" tick box?

I'm guessing it wouldn't (I'm still on 2012 so I assume that's been added sometime since then.)

Probably best ignore me!

I've always wanted to combine the pattern setup dialog with the paste with pattern dialog.  I can't think of a single time that I've setup the pattern and then immediately did not do a paste with pattern. 

If you keep them separate maybe be able to save the pattern and then call up whatever pattern you want in the paste dialog.
