Controlling mate reference choice.

Question asked by Aaron Ferrier on Sep 3, 2015

I have a part that can attach to a base at several points using mate references.  The problem is, when I place it into the assembly it only wants to mate with certain mate references, even though all are identical.

 

Is there any way to control which mate reference the inserted part connects to?

 

It also constantly wants to create smart mates, reorienting the part as I'm moving it.  Is there any way to stop this?
