Sketches that move with a part

I frequently make a solid and then sketches that are related to the solid with relations. Sometimes I want to move the solid (each move is associated with different configurations). The sketches have some relations to the solid but it is not fully defined. The sketches would take way longer to fully define. Using the automatic fully define slows things way down in the sketch.


I want the sketch to move with the solid. I tried using a block which worked. The problem is that if you want to use the block to do operations like offset from those sketch entities then you have to explode the block, offset the entities and then make the block all over.


Does anybody have a way to solve the problem of having a less than fully defined sketch move with a solid without making the sketch a block?
