Why cant I insert a model into an assembly after importing it ??

I have a project that I wanted to try out onshape with.  I created several parts in 1 part studio and them inserted them in to an assembly, no problem.  I then imported a model from the internet, and it created a new part studio of that part only, but I cant select it to insert in the assembly.  I then created another new part studio of a dummy part and it will allow me to insert from there.  Look along the bottom of the screenshot to see the tabs for PartStudio 1 and PartStudio 2 but the one for the imported toilet model is not available for insert, any ideas why?
