Best practice for copying parts of a group, to create new group?

I often need to copy a face from a group or component, but find myself exploding the copied entity just to free it from the orginal (THEN regrouping the original enities).
Is there a better way?

Try using Copy… followed by Paste In Place

Where the Copy happens from within the Group Edit mode… and Paste in Place is used after you exit the Groups Edit Mode.

for menu location See… >Edit >Paste In Place

Regular old Copy and Paste worked, per your suggestion!

Usually “exploding” is a backwards move. Good advice.
