I have a PRT file in which I have two auxillary planes.
How can I copy a sketch on Plane One over to Plane Two?
CTRL C, CTRL V doesn't work
I found a Copy function but I haven't found a Paste.
You can ctrl select and drag sketch onto o the plane where you want to copy it.
If you want to keep the sketch linked, then create derived sketch.
Added a quick video to show the above methods.
Sounds great, Deepak, but - where do I find the video? I can't see anything here.
I can't figure out what you mean by "ctrl select and drag" !
Here's a DWG. I want to take the profile in Sketch9 on Plane1 and copy it to Plane6. The idea is to sweep/loft that cross-section between the two extruded shapes.
All help here much appreciated.

You can attach the files here. Check #18 here Forum Posting
Thanks for the hint on file attachment.
Sorry vagulus dagg, i mention for move sketch from one plane to other plane. Mr.Gupta provides a right solution to you. But it links with the first sketch.
Here is the another option.
1. Edit the sketch you wanna to copy from first plane > press "CTRL+A" and "CTRL+c".
2. Select the plane you wanna to paste > Click Sketch > press "CTRL+v" and then position the sketch.
3. If there is a link between the first sketch > Click "Display/Delete" > Set "All in Sketch" > Remove all skech relation and apply relation once again.
Thanks and Regards

I have crated a sketch (Sketch11) on Plane4.
Than I opened Skecth9 on Plane1 and copied it (CTRL+A, CTRL+C).
Then I closed Sketch9 and opened Sketch11.
Then I pasted (CTRL+V) the profile onto Sketch11.
It is now there - so far, so good.
The equation-based dimensions did not move as equation-based so I had to reset them.
I have converted the construction line onto Plane4
So far so good.
Now the project is to move the profile so that the centre-line is co-linear with the converted (solid, black) line.
SWX doesn't want anything to do with that!
In fact, Add Relations doesn't work at all.
How do I now move the profice to where I want it?
While the tips given so far are a great way to do this, I find if I need to reuse sketches I prefer to make a Block from the sketch. After that it pastes in as a single entity and can be easily moved and located without concern for the individual entities from losing the original dimensions and constraints. The other advantage is it becomes available for immediate reuse in any other project.
