Maybe I'm missing something here;
Often in an assembly I'll be creating a new part. Sketching works fine, sketch points will snap as expected, but holes wont. So I've been creating a dummy circle or other feature where I want the hole, creating the hole nearby and then dragging in sync (or using relationships). Is there a more direct way to place a hole, apart from going the assembly feature route? And if not, wouldn't it be logical for the hole command to respect peers, as do other commands?

Hi there @hjoy,
Odd.....I have no problem placing holes using peer locations here.
Could it be that old PITA "perspective view" tripping up the ability to locate the peers in that particular process?

I can confrim this behaviour with - and this I have seen in Your video - with SE2019
maybe this is a version issue since I also remember that holes could be placed in the same way as normal sketch elements.
PS.: I personally prefer the use of creating an extrusion (negativ) followed by a Recognize Holes functionin sync.
Or - if available You directly can substract the screw bolts from Your plate with letting SE recognizes the thread types and sizes.
