Greetings Protel users,

Scenario: 
   Schematic design heavily based on complex hierarchy
for duplicating certain parts of the design. Sort of
like a stereo system with a left and right channel.
After the design is flattened, every part gets it own
designator and it's ready for PCB layout.

Can anyone suggest a method for replicating the PCB
layout (relative placement, tracks, vias, polygons,
etc.) for these parts of the design which are
identical except for the designators and local net
names ? 

I know I can select, copy and paste part the layout.
The copy will have incremented designators (default),
or it may have duplicate designators too. But how can
I synchronize this PCB layout copy to the duplicated
schematic (say, the left channel) without having to
manually rename the designators, which is prone to
errors.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

David
