Assign Part ID during spit or boolean

While splitting 1 part into multiple parts at once, there is no way to assign which one becomes Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, etc... 
If a split early in the feature tree gets edited, there is a chance the part identifications will be switched, resulting in errors in later features or the deletion of the wrong part. 

It would be very helpful if there is a way for us to anchor or pin a part ID to a specific part in a part studio when performing and split, or boolean operation. This would also be helpful in cases where a part is replaced in an assembly that is used to make in context edits.

    @Blake_Larkin This is a larger challenge that we are in current development to work with.
