How to make a prompt when inserting a toolbox library part?

Hi Everyone,


I've saved a copy of a toolbox screw part and created different sizes/configurations using a design table.


When inserting the screw part into an assembly I'd like the solidworks interface to prompt and ask which screw size I would like to insert.


Picture 1 shows the inserted toolbox part which mates correctly, however just inserts the last saved configuration.


Picture 2 shows me inserting a regular part which brings up the prompt box.


Picture 3 shows the tree with different symbols for toolbox and a regular part.


My question is do I need to somehow convert the toolbox part to a regular part for this to work? and if so how?


Thanks for you time.
