Using the refind geometric function.

Bert F

Recently I am started drawing in solidworks now I face a few problems. In first instance I have drawn a part then I mirror it and I split it because of this all my geometric information are loss.
Now to refind this geometric information I work as follows:
first I save my file as a b_x file format then I reopen this and then I’m in the ability to recognize features
my question is now is there a way around this saving in in other format an reopening this files? Why can I not just use the recognize facility in a normal file the file origins from the split operation?
Thanks a lot in advance.
