Let's suppose I have three sheets, Connector1.schdoc, Connector2.schdoc, and Connector3.schdoc. Each sheet has an instance of the sub-sheet InputFilter.schdoc, which has something simple like an RC filter on it. Complicating things a bit, one instance of the sub-sheet InputFilter.schdoc uses different parts, and the whole board is already laid out.

I'd like to get rid of the sub-sheets and have all the components on their respective parent sheets, but I figure if I copy and paste it the layout will get torn up. Is there a way to do an inverse refactor, basically the opposite of "Moving Selected Sub-Circuitry to a Different Sheet" from the documentation here, and preserve the layout and component variants?

I'm on Altium 19.1.

Use copy and then Edit -> "smart paste". Select "Paste as themselve". By this you do not loose the designator or the UUID and the sync to the PCB should work without changes on the PCB.
