Excellent work around. I gave it a try and it will certainly suffice. The only issue is the length change. I can't do it with the Property Editor, as it comes off the wrong end. I used the Lengthen/Shorten tool and that worked great.
I had never used the Copy with Reference before. That's a handy little thing. For such a seemingly simple program, there seems to be a tool for everything. I just have to find it!
