Advanced holes

is there a way to make an Advanced Hole and save it in a design library that actually works

i have created an Advanced Hole & Save it in to my design library but when i drag & drop the feature into a part, the feature ask for a plane if i select top,right or front plane of my part i get this message "unable to create library feature with selected references".

this only happens with the Advanced Hole feature if i use a Hole Wizard it works fine, i don't know the reason why the library feature ask for a plane i never use a plane as a reference in the advanced hole feature. 1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg
