Selecting mate connector on part?
When I add a mate connector to a cylinder, I can place the connector at the top, middle, or bottom of the cylinder. In some cases, I can move the mouse to choose the right location, but this is not generally possible---e.g., because moving the mouse causes other parts to be highlighted, so that you lose the mate connector options.
So how does one select where to put a mate connector on a part without moving the mouse? See the image below for an example. I want the mate connector to be at the bottom white circle for the tile highlighted in yellow... but the second I move the mouse to select that location, I lose the mate connector options. Thanks!
