is it possible to copy an exploded view from version A of an assembly to a new version of A?
same componets with tweaks in new ver., i don't want to recreate the exploded view.
You can copy Exploded views from one configuration to another inside the same assembly, but I don't know how to copy an exploded view from one assembly to another. See attached video.
Good to know!

A copied assembly carries the exploded view with it.
I was going to suggest: Convert View to Sketch, Save as Block, and insert block into new drawing. This entirely assumes that you want it to become entirely disassociated with any model, changes or updates, and such. This was known to me, but unfamiliar, so I attempted it before posting.
However, when I tried this, my results were very unexpected in SWx 2018 SP5. It did convert to sketch as a sketch. Then, I could not select anything but its annotation notes to create a block from. I tried converting view to sketch and replacing as a block, intending to save that, but instead it replaced my whole view with an existing block already in use elsewhere. I simply cannot tell from inexperience with this command, whether this is broken functionality, or malfunctioning as intended, or entirely useless. The file I'm messing with is entirely unmanageable, and I cannot waste any more time on this.
Maybe you can try Convert View to Sketch and achieve better results than I could, or someone else can chime in with more useful advice of using that command.
Edit: I just noticed the 3-week age of the OP, whose user also amazingly last logged in 2 months prior to the origin of this post. Note for others, the asker will not care. Responses are only for perpetuity and searchable results.
