To copy and paste in drafts you select what you want to copy, then right click copy and right click paste. It is gonna be pasted in the same exact spot so you have to drag it to place it in different position. Hope that helps.

Not sure we are on the same page here. I mean to copy a sheet a part or print would be on such as sheet a, sheet b. Then paste it as a new sheet. Right clicking the sheet tab does not give me a copy option.

For that you have to copy and paste the drawing the background separately. You open a new empty sheet of the size you want. Select all with crtl+A and paste your drawing into the new sheet. Then go to your original drawing and go to "View" Tab on top then select "background" in "sheet views" tab and deselect "working". That would enable you to select copy and paste the background. to the new sheet.

Right click down on the Sheet tan and "Insert" a new sheet. Then do to the Sheet you want to copy. hit <CTRL> A to select everything on the sheet. Then hit <CTRL> C to copy it. Then go to the newly created sheet and hit <CTRL> V to paste it.

SE will paste it in the same exact spot is was on the original sheet. (Note, this well not "copy" the background as well, just what is on the sheet.

In the example above select and right click and copy the the sheet "1/2" and then selecting the same sheet 
right click and paste the new sheet will be renamed automatically ( here in the above example it formed sheet "1/3" ) and will have all the contents whatever present on the souce sheet.

What you have illustrated @Thirukkural is perhaps what the OP meant almost 2.5 yrs back.

I can write a macro in Solid Edge to accomplish this, which would simply be automation of the workarounds suggested so far, but not sure how many will find it (the macro) useful.
