Click part to create view fails on imported parts

Question asked by Tom Hickerson on Jun 8, 2017

When I am in the drawing and I create a new model view.  I can usually click on that part in the assembly its used and the view is created.  However if the part is a step file or download solidworks part rather than giving me a view of just that part it gives me a view of the entire assembly.  I have tired clicking on the part itself, and also on the part number in the tree.  It does however work if I open the part in a new windows and click on it there. 

 

Is there any way to make this work without opening up the part or browsing for the file name?
