part not centred about origin in an assembly

When I create a part I always origin the center of the part around the origin point.


However when I bring this first part into an assembly this item does not automatically place itself about the center origin in an assembly file.

I have to manually place it then unfix it so it can float, then constrain it manually about the center origin.


Is this normal behaviour, or should the first part automaticaly centre about the assembly origin as it has been defined about the origin in the part file.


I am sure it used to so (though I might be mistaken) is there a setting that may have been changed?
