Its been to long a wait, when will negative value functionality be a reality is SW (currently using SW2019).


DS should know by now that the simple improvement of allowing negative values  will be revolutionary for all things dimension'd; sketches, reference geometry (planes) , Mates, Configurations and Simulation application are improved instantly, this would be a game changer.

Biggest game changer in SW history, this is not an exaggeration, controlling dist across origin, flip-floppin, back and forth, - to + , basically a controllable/configurable "distance flip"...WHAT!


Please SW software dev team, please finally allow negative distances in all SW distance inputs (without becoming absolute after a forced flip).  There is infinite potential of application improvement possibilities with this.


P.S. Inventor has this functionality!  Autodesk doesn't have much functionality better than SW, this is the most import one they have had for a very long time.
