Part orbit?

When inserting parts into an assembly sometimes they come in a strange orientation.  I have used the move with Triad command, but I find it uneasy to use.  Coming from inventor there was a way to orbit parts regardless of existing mates.  It was very handy.  You could also use it to yank a part out of the way and the next time you hit update it would reapply the mates. 

 

Is there an equivalent for either of these in solidworks ( 1.  Free rotate of a part, or 2.  Having the assembly ignore mates till the next update?)
