Clearance Hole - Wildfire 2

<DIV>How do I create a Clearance hole in Wildfire 2? In Pro/E 2001, it was Insert > Hole > Standard > Clearance. It was like a thru all straight hole, but you gave it the screw size and it gave youa predefined diameter for the hole. You could also add a counter bore and/or countersink. In Wildfire 2, I can make a standard hole with the thru all option, not show the threads, but it gives me a tap diameter. Anyone know how to create a true clearance hole in Wildfire 2 as in 2001?</DIV>

<DIV>1. Insert a Hole. The hole dashboard will appear.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>2. Click on the Standard Hole icon (looks like a screw).</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>3. Make the hole a THRU ALL or THRU NEXT.</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>4. Click on the "Adds Tapping" icon. (This is greyed out if NOT THRU ALL or THRU NEXT).</DIV></DIV>
