Disable auto-orientation in Add Component Preview Window

Experimenter
Experimenter

Is there a way to keep the new component from automatically re-orienting itself in the preview window after I apply an assembly constraint? 

 

One of the few things I don't dislike about NX 12 is the new Add Component dialog box. However, I do dislike that the components in new Component Preview window rotate and orient themselvs to match their orientation relative to the absolute CS of the main assembly.

 

It is fustrating when I am adding a symetrical component to a large assembly because the component will spin around and I can't tell which side is which anymore and almost always pick the same feature to constrain multiple times.
