Distances between points and/or parts on Assemby Studios

Althought the program tells you distances and other information between diferent instances on Part Studios, I miss similar information on Asembly Studios.
When designing parts, not always are located on the position that will be located when asembled or can be assembled on different ways... So sometimes I need some infromation about distances between parts or certain points on the assembly. (May be it is only me...)

So I think that will be very usefull for me a tool that tell the designer the distances between determined points when assembling
May be the points can be determinated by mate connectors points.

Does any other think this tool will be usefull?

    Presently in Onshape assembly studio we can measure the distance between the existing corners,edges and faces but we can't create any points.Yes point can from sketch tool so it only available in part studio.Mate connector will next solution get distance between user defined points.I m also thinking capability of measuring dimensions between mate connector is a good option.

    Thank you @Narayan_K that is what I mean, I miss that functionality on Assembly Studios, actually sometimes I have to guess and do a trial/fail approach...

    I too would like to have this possibility and it is also something that one would assume considering how measurement tool works for other instances.
