Changing reference object in drawing file

I wondered if there is a way of changing view reference from one object to another.

Example.

I have two similar models but drawing done for one.

I could save it as with a different name and replace in all the views referenciing from old model to new one.

Possible?

Wikihelp says no.

"NoteYou can replace a model only with the same type of model. Replace IPT with IPT, IAM with IAM, and IPN with IPN."

But have a go, you never know.

I bet your dimensions will get messed up if it does work as the edges will not be recognised.
