    Hi @Paulo_C - welcome to Onshape! The centermark tool only puts crosshairs at the center of the hole. If you want to extend them you have to use the 2 point centerline. Please create an improvement request to have an option to change this behaviour in the category on the right -->

    Imagining doing this for tens of holes!

    This is very important question from Paolo, and it should really be changed into an improvement request as this is something I am sure a lot of engineers would like. Haibing_Wang has a very good comment to this, and I totally agree
