Copying sketches

Is it possible to copy a sketch basically right on top of the old one without all the constraints and dimensions back to the model becoming dangling? It is very frustrating to have to reattach everything when all I want was a copy that changes by maybe one dimension (for now).

To clarify - I have a sketch that is similar to another sketch that I will need. I need them to stay independent, but I would like to not have to redo the work I just did. I can copy and paste the sketch onto the plane that I need, but I then have to go fix all the dangling dimensions and constraints that locate the sketch in the model. Is there a way to make a copy that will initially be right on top of the other sketch, but that I can then go edit and change the one or two things that I need to be different?
