Edit material only changes in active configuration.

Why does Solidworks, when you change the material of a part, only change the material in the current configuration?

In Sheet metal parts we have this results in a Flat Pattern with a different material as the folded configuration.

When clicking on the Config option in Material editor the option All configurations is already selected and with a click on OK the material is made equal for all configurations.

 

Isn't it possible for solidworks to have the same material for all configurations by default, unless selected otherwise instead of the other way around?
