That is not the Parametric Part Editor, but Parametric Part.
And BTW, trust me, Parametric Part Editor is easier and more funny, but you will need Pro Platinum for that, i dont know what version/ edition you use

Edit; i then remember that you show it in your pic. :)

There are one example of copy cirles in this tread;

as Torfinn says scripting is easier - and more reliable

For this method you need to nest 2 parametric symbols together.
see the attached file it might be a bit vague though
 - there is also a video by Dave Taylor somewhere.

I have also added a scripted version - although they are coded they are easier to edit
and more stable. You can also do a lot more with scripted parts
open in the parametric part script editor palette.
  edited to save the example as version 21

don't use the editor it breaks the part
