Locking references causing sub-sequent referenced sketches to fail.

I am wondering if you guys have tried the same.

From an assembly i insert part (virtual) and mate to origin - i then edit part in assembly to copy (surface offset = 0mm) the surfaces i need.

I open the part, sketch, features and so on.


But when i think, wow thats nice - and want to lock the reference of the first feature Surface-Ooffset1-> the sketch goes dangling where it connects to surface offset.

Nothing has changed BUT the locking of the references.


Is there a work around for this, or just a limitation in SolidWorks??
