custom properties and  "Save As copy"

Outline of Requirements

 

Within our company we have the need to be able to use alot of custom properties.

The issue comes where we have basically a Template Saved File With a basic model With all the Custom properties and the "formulas" for them Saved in regards to a Simple model.

 

The idea was that this model would be located in a "Design library" a User could then Open That model Copy, Go to Save as. open the Reference box and Give the new Assembly and new Parts there names.

 

How ever All of the custom properties do not update the Part names Even if The Dimension names are carried over (excellent) the formula is now

"Length1@extrude1@OLDMODELNAME.SLDPRT"

 

Is there any way to fix this, or a better practice?

 

thanks Joe.
