Insert/move parts & assemblies

I know this is probably a stupid question but here goes.

When creating a new document, I wish to reuse parts and assemblies from other documents.  I know I can INSERT from another document but then the item doesn't appear as a tab in the new document.  I can also MOVE an item from another document into the one I'm working on but then the tab disappears from the original document.  The functionality I need is COPY from another source so it would then appear as tabs in both documents. 

So, how to do this?  There's probably some little checkbox I've missed.

    One can duplicate a part and then move it but not an assembly - at least as far as I understand.
