Bringing linetypes/line colors/layers from assembly to drawing

One of the engineers where I work is trying to develop air kits for trailers on SolidWorks. We've got most of the logistic down but there's something that's not quite working for us.

 

The guy in question created his sketches in the assembly instead of the drawing. The problem we're having is that when we show the sketches from the assembly inside the drawing, they lose all their ''properties'', such as color and line type.

 

This is what we wish to accomplish:

 

This is what happens with the sketch:

 

So what we need to do is convert the sketch and redo the whole colors and linetype thing. What makes it annoying is that if we do modify it eventually we need to redo the same job in the drawing that we did in the assembly, such as delete lines or convert entities and set their layers. Anyone has any idea on how to avoid this?
