Properties Manager changes material of all parts

In an assembly I'm using Inspect/Properties Manager to change material of parts.

Disconcertingly when I change the field for one part it changes the material for all parts.

This doesn't seem like the desired default behavior. I would think one would be able to use it to change material for selected parts. If you want the same material for all parts you change one then copy/paste into the others.

Maybe someone with earlier versions of SE can check the functionality and tell me if it's the same.

@AlexBergeron, By "OK" do you mean you can change a part's material and the others in the list don't change?

Just as I wanted it to do

OK, I just noticed that while changing one part material and having the same material show up for all the changeable parts shown in the properties manager is an illusion. When you close and reopen the properties manager dialog only the part selected is actually changed.

Not good. @AlexBergeron, is that what you see with MP2?

@hawcad, what version and MP are you on?

@hawcad, OK, so the other parts don't show changed in the list like in my video? Only the part selected? If so, it must be an MP2 fix.
