There is no way to set a "default" interctively. It will retain the previous options if you create several operations.
If you always want the same 4 parents for an operation, you can do this with templates. In the template part (or your copy) set the parents as you want, and on the template operation turn on the template setting to create if parent is created. When you use this operation as a template, the system will assign or create the parents as needed to match the templae part.
