Save As with an external copy geom

How do you copy an assembly that has a component part with a dependent
external copy geom feature? I want new names for the assembly, part, and
the part being referenced by the external copy geom feature. With WF2
and PDMLink 8.0, I have 2 choices: Save a Copy from Pro/E and Save As
from Commonspace. Pro/E will prompt me to either Reuse or enter a New
Name for the components, but it does not list the part being referenced
by the external copy geom feature. Save As on the assembly in PDMLink
also does not list the part being referenced by the external copy geom
feature (even with All selected for Dependents). Strangely, however,
Save As on the component that contains the external copy geom feature
WILL display the dependent object (if All is selected for Dependents).
We need this to happen at the assembly level, though. Any ideas? I
don't remember this being an issue in ILINK 3.X. Can anyone confirm that
Duplicate in 3.X will prompt for a new name in the example I've
described?

Thanks,
AB
