Currently there is no straightforward way to copy a sketch to another design
Copy and paste would be very convenient
This is definitely something we want to get to, and is also closely related to http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/ideastation-request-a-feature-or/copy-sketch-to-another-plane/idi-p/58.... There are some ground work we need to do first before we get to this, so marking this as future consideration.
I guess you're asking for the ability to select a sketch from the browser and copy\paste to a new design, not just select all in a sketch you're editing then paste into a sketch in a different design as you can already do that.
Something that could be a problem is that in the new design the plane\face the sketch was made on will probably not exist so you'll need to select a plane in the destination design. The problem here is have you tried using Redefine Sketch, it is pretty useless as the sketch usually ends up in the wrong orientation so that will need fixing before copying sketches between documents will work.
How is that any different from pasting 3D geometry ? Either way you have to specify the position and orientation
That's OK if they give us all the options, just wanted to make sure we don't end up with something useless like redefine sketch plane. It been broken and complained about for several years.
I'd like to be able to copy and paste between designs. I've not had a total nightmare with redefine sketch, but I've only used it a few times and with very limited intent.
I think needing to select a plane before pasting would be necessary.
I Export sketches as DXF and then Import them into new Designs.
