Add-Ins affecting System Options

Hello All,


I have recently found that a setting in my options > External References > assemblies> "Update component names when documents are replaced" is changing everytime i open solidworks 2016


I've managed to narrow it down to one factor. Which is that when i open SOLIDWORKS without the SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016 Add-in enabled on start-up. My settings are un-affected. However if i then enable the add in. The above setting becomes unticked. Which has become a bit of a problem working on big assemblies with BOM's generating hundreds of parts.


I was wondering if anyone knew what the issue is here? it appears to only change when i log into the electrical package (as i have set up a log in requirement to use the software)


Kind Regards
