Is there a way to disable the prompt (shown below) a user receives when creating a new configuration, that asks if the user if they want to link display states to configurations. If there are any developers reading this discussion, why was it decided upon that amongst all of the prompts which a user can choose to not be reminded of, that this prompt was laft out of that mix.

I know how to use display states. I know how to use configurations. I don't always need to have multiple display states in my parts, plus the auto-naming scheme for display states is rather obnoxious; In order to fully read the FeatureManager Design Tree, I sometimes need to drag the tree out so that it covers half of the screen, because the display state name looks like: <Default>_Display State 1, which ends up usually being longer than the part file name (without a file extension). I usually end up renaming the first display state to "DS1". This discussion is more of a rant than anything, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
