Display of related parts when clicking on constraint in tree

Although I like the feature, several co-workers do not like SE dimming/shading all other parts when selecting a constraint in the tree, see attachment.  Is there a way to turn this off?  We just switched to ST7 from ST5 last week.

Solid Edge Options --> Assembly Tab. Towards the bottom "Dim surrounding components when..."

I don't have that in my Assembly tab (see attached), is that something they brought in ST8?

Try the View tab. That's where it is in ST8.

I meant the assembly category, like you show. But my options are more extensive and better grouped. I assume this was ST8 -- I am using ST9 :-) (we started ST9 builds back in June).

While some people like the dimming others don't OR at times when they are modeling/reviewing the ASM would like to turn it off.

 

We have added an option in ST9 to turn this behavior off so the parts no longer dim when the ASM relationship is selected.

 

Thanks,
