Part transparency changes in assembly

SW 2010

Create a part (simple cube)

Save it

Insert part in assembly.

Save assembly

Set part in assembly to transparent (change transparency)

Edit part


The part changes back to opaque

You can still select through the opaque faces as if it is transparent

This is not changed by editing the settings under display/selection "assembly transparency for in context edit"


This was not the case in SW 2006. The part would stay transparent.

GoEngineer says this is the desired function and to submit an enhancement request.

Does anyone have any other ideas to fix this? I have never gotten a response on an enhancement request
