How to center features in Sheet Metal?

This one is borderline embarrassing... http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cIjqlvVk1R

 

I can't seem to figure out how to center features to other features. I figured the symmetry face relate would do it, but it doesn't seem to work for this application. I could use dimensions, but they wont scale properly as I edit the rest of the part.

 

Thanks again

You can create face relate relationships to honor the conditions you want.

Note that you do not need to create "all"  the relations becasue live rules still "finds" the coplanar by axis.

Maybe it's not working because it's a patterned feature?

yea, that makes sense. The Pattern is a procedural feature...

You could drop the pattern and constrain as shown
or
reset the pattern origin to the plane of symmetry.
