Insert new part in assembly as floating by default?

When I insert a new (virtual) part into an assembly, it is always fixed.  I would like it floating.  Is there a default setting for this?  I can't find it.  Also, I would prefer to be automatically prompted to enter a name.  All the extra button clicks to do both every time start to wear me down.  In case you want background, I am making piping systems (but don't have routing).  I place all the components (all external files) with mates in the assembly. Then, as a last step, I link them together with pipes that I leave virtual.  With many pipes to add, every extra action adds up.

 

Thanks,

 

Marty
