Change which sketch an entity belongs to?

Is there a way to reassign an entity to a different sketch? For example if I have an existing sketch entity as an input from some previous sketch feature, can I make those curves belong to a sketch I'm doing in my own feature instead?

If I need an entity from an earlier sketch, I just "Use" it into the current one.0
Then delete everything besides the entities you want to keep from the copied sketch.
Then pattern your sketch and what is left that was created by the other sketch at once. It will not likely create one sketch but in the feature tree it will look like one.
