How do I select fine threads on metric fasteners

I am working with the Solidworks toolbox to generate part numbers for standard fasteners. The problem I have come across is that when working in Solidworks and i bring in a standard metric fastener (say a bolt) I am unable to select what thread pitch I want to use. When I look in toolbox under that fastener I see that different threads are not listed under in the bottom pane but they are listed under thread data.

 

The only way I have found to select the pitch on metric fasteners in any way when generating assemblies is only by generating a tapped hole and assigning it the different thread pitch.

 

Is there something that I am missing? I'm relatively new to Solidworks.
