Can I select the whole sub-assembly instead of individual parts in the sub-assembly when selecting it the model view? Many times I get individual parts selected and not paying attention will open the individual part instead of the sub-assembly.
I click a part in the sub assembly, then look at the feature manager to choose the "top" of that sub assembly and click on that to select everything in that sub.
You can select it from the fight-click drop-down. See Kelvin's response to this Idea: Ability to right click on a part in a sub assembly and open that sub assembly .
