Copy to New Part in a Top-Down Assembly

I have a top-down assembly, TOP.sldasm, in which I want to take a part, A.sldprt, and create a copy, B.sldprt, that still maintains all the external references.

A is defined in the context of TOP, and I want B to be as well. Playing around with the 'Save As' and 'Save as Copy' commands, I can get A or B to point back to TOP, but not both.

This is to save me time creating B, as the in-context parts are the same as A. I realize using configurations of A instead would work, but I am trying to avoid that as A and B require require separate part numbers.

Is there a way to do this?
