Enter key no longer serves to insert part at origin of assy - or does it?

Can anyone still using SW2010 or earlier, confirm that the Enter key acts the same as clicking the OK button (green check mark), when inserting a part into an assy?


It has been pointed out at that this function no longer works in SW2011. I reported this to my VAR who responded with ...

"I  tested this behavior on my system using Solidworks 2011 service pack 2.0 and the  enter key did not locate a part at the assembly origin. I then tested this issue  using Solidworks 2010 service pack 5.0 and the behavior was identical; the enter  key did not locate a part at the assembly origin.

What  version of Solidworks were you using when you last used the enter key to locate  a part at the assembly origin?"

... I'm pretty sure I last did this with SW2010 or maybe even SW2011-SP0 or 1, but cannot do it with SW2011-SP2
