Serial numbers on "Save as"

This could clearly not be the intention with serial numbering.

I've noticed a option in the PDMWE option menu in solidworks, where you can select "automatically name files on save as with serial number" but i guess that is only for creating a file name based on serial numbering.

How can i get new numbers on parts "saved as"?

My workaround on this one has so far been to create a copy of the file using windows explorer (inside a vault). Then i get a dialog box where i can choose to give the copied part a new serial number.

Any thoughts of this?
