Extracting sketches to DXF with layers

Hi All,

I want to extract all the 2D sketches in a part to a single DXF file.

The catch is that I need to have each sketch on a separate layer.

I have come close to this by selecting the sketches and copying (ctrl-C) and pasting (ctrl-V) to a new part.  Then I can save the part as DXF.

I can also make all the sketches visible (right click and select show on each sketch and make sketches visible from the view menu), then hide the solid bodies and save as DXF.

 

The problem with both these options is that the sketches all end up on layer 0 and I can't separate them.

 

Can anyone think of a way to get the sketches onto separate layers or group the elements together?

 

Thanks in advance.
