Skeletal Sketches and Copy

we very often create parts/assemblies using skeletal sketches, problem we encounter is that when we use the copy command in the components area on the ribbon.


The problem we have is that when we open the new assembly and components they are still looking at the original skeletal sketch. is there anyway to copy the orginal skeletal sketch to a new one and the new parts look at this upon using the copy.


At present what we do is make a copy and rename the original file. Then open the assembly and it looks for the original skeletal sketch, so we point it at the new skeletal sketch.


This is not an issue when we have a couple of parts in an assembly but if you have a lot of parts in the assembly it si very time consuming.
