Inserting second and subequent parts into an assembly

Inserting second and subequent parts into an assembly

(OP)
Greetings all!

When I insert first part into an assembly, it is put into the zero of absolute coordinate system and grounded. When I insert second and subequent parts into the same assembly, they are asking for the alignment.

Is it possible to insert all parts into an assemby the same way as the first one - without aligning them manually, just into the the zero?

I believe that in 2013 you have the opportunity to 'on place item' right click and select grounded at origin.
