Allow format attributes to be modified when making copies

Allow format attributes to be modified when making copies

Currently, to "make a copy" of a format, PTC's best practice is a convoluted process to export the format entities and import them into a newly created format from scratch.

http://support.ptc.com/cs/cs_26/howto/fom_size/fom_size.htm

This is because none of the format attributes, including Sheet Size cannot be changed once the file has been created.  So, you cannot simply do a save as and modify size and detail elements.  This wastes days of time when companies need to make changes to formats.

PTC, please bring the format functions into the modern computing era and allow all attributes to be modified after formats have been copied.
