Does anyone know a quick way to lengthen a component that already has a curved detail on the end? I'm finishing up a model for a flywheel lathe and have a nice profile on the ends of the bed rails. I just realized I need to stretch the rail by about 2" but with a curve on the ends I can't use the push/pull tool. I run into this a lot and usually just delete the profile, push/pull, then draw it back in. There must be an easier way. Anyone?

open the component for editing (double click it)

pull the selection box around about half of the rails...then use the MOVE tool to drag the selection whatever distance you want (2")
