add replace-function to the "save as copy"-dialoge for assemblies

add replace-function to the "save as copy"-dialoge for assemblies

Several times, I have the use-case that I want to create a new assembly with existing parts in a new combination.

So we have to create a copy of the assembly and then step into the replace dialoge separately.

The ideal would be to run a "replace with unrelated part"-dialoge with automatic start of evaluation dialoge after pressing the save copy-button.

- Example would be two nearly identical pistons, just with different material in two different engines.

Now need to create a copy of engine one with piston of engine two.

- Other example is to start some development improvements. After evaluation, create a copy of existing assembly with new part.

I agree this could be very useful.  The replace option could be placed in the action drop down (Save a copy / Reuse / Replace).  The new part would then need to be selected.  Using the Replace dialog box with all of its function would be great as I am a fan of the Edit Ref Table option.  An option to remove a part could also be useful.
