Can I make a new component from a copy?

Is it possible to make a new component from a copy component?

If you right click the component there will be an option to copy it. Once that is done, right click on the the top of the model tree, or a component or sub component and click "paste new" to add the copied component to that section of the tree. The "paste new" command does not maintain a parametric link between the original and the copy, while the "paste" command does. 


Does this answer your question?

Hi Brett, 


I don't know a way to do what you are asking and I don't see anything obvious after some quick testing. With that being said, I never use the move/copy command to copy things, so I'm not the best person to ask.
