Replacing Components

In my assemblies, I have some components that are in the toolbox library. I am saving them out into the local file as I need specific properties related to this assembly only. All is ok until I close it and open it again... When I do this, the assembly reverts BACK to the toolbox components. It doesn't matter how many time a replace the components, they still revert back to the Toolbox components... The ones I have copied to the local folder have new names & properties.


Why does Solidworks do this? surely if I decide to replace the components, they should remain as is?
