Default Selection Scope

I'm fairly new to NX and I'm currently designing a machine in assembly mode. I was wondering if there was a way I could default the selection scope to "entire assembly" because between parts it likes to switch back to "within work part only". It's kind of annoying to have to constantly switch back to "entire assembly" everytime.

There is a option in assembly preference by which the root assembly part becomes as work part automatically. You dont need to make the root assembly part as work part everytime when you switch from component part to assembly root part by using option display parent.


Menu >> Preferences >> Assemblies >> Maintain


Make sure Maintain option should be unchecked.
