Ruled shell defined by previously drawn profiles

Is it possible to create a Ruled Shell, but instead of drawing its two profiles, just choose the previously drawn lines (profiles)?
I managed to choose only the first profile of the shell (by holding space bar and clicking on the previously drawn line), but not the second profile.

Thank you!

It is possible to do.
In the Floor Plan Viewpoint, draw the two profiles using e.g. the Polyline Tool.
Use the Shell Tool with the "Ruled" Geometry Method, and the "Detailed" Construction Method.
1. SPACE-click the first polyline.
2. Specify the Distance between the Planes.
3. Space-click the other polyline.
