When I save a part as a parasolid file and open this file and save again in solidworks I will loose all the part information. Is there a way to reinstate this data into the new part ?

I have saved a solidworks part as a parasolid part. I opened this part in solidworks and saved it as a solidworks part. The associated drawing is now showing all dangling dimensions, as all data pertaining to faces, edges, loops, vertices have vanished.

My question is, Is it possible to store the definitions of the defining entities such faces, edges, loops, vertices etc. into a temporary location before converting this part into a native part like IGES, STEP. I should be able to reinstate these details internally in the part so that the associated drawing dimensions will point to these entities without showing an error.
