How do I insert a sketch into a file

I was in a hurry and saved the sketch but exited the drawing.

Is there a way to open a new one and put it in there?
When you are in sketcher mode you must go: Sketch -- >Data from File --> Type:sketch(-*.sec) and open your *.sec file. Scale factor should be 1 and rotating angle 0 deg.
If you are using intent manager, you can do what mvitez said. if you have intent manager turned off, you can use Sec Tools> Place Section. Hope this helps....
Does anyone know how to insert the sketch into a drawing? I have tried to no avail. You can Copy from Drawing to the sketcher, but do not seem to be able to copy the sketch to the drawing. I am running on UNIX which may make my circumstance different.
