Multiple parts, make on virtual not all.

Here is the deal. I have done my Redneck work around for this for years figuring SW would fix this. Right now I have an assembly that I am giving a new name and not renaming all of the parts because they are standard parts. But if I have several parts with the same name and I need one or two of those parts to be named different, I want to right click, make virtual, and make my changes. Thing is when I do this it takes all of the parts of the same name and makes all of them virtual. Sometimes this is OK but most times I would like it to just make the one part virtual. What I have been doing is opening the part, save as copy with new name, close part and then do a replace part. Or I drag a copy of the part into another assembly that does not have that part in it then drag it back and re-mate. Any other suggestions.
