Copy Features Without References

I am proficient in Catia and Creo and wanted to know if there is a way to copy surfaces, points, or, lines and paste them without a reference?
I know how to do this in Catia, but I can't figure out how to do it in Creo.

Either paste them without references or be able to Isolate them after pasting.

RE: Copy Features Without References

There is a command to break external references, but don't have the actual command sequence to give.

RE: Copy Features Without References

You can paste them with reference and when you are done you can "collapse" them. Collapse is a command under model tab, editing, in creo4. However if you have family tables it seems collapse is greyed out.
