Default right click marking menu

OK i'm using Maya 8.5 but in previous versions of Maya when I right click on and object and select a component i.e vertex, it used to automatically enable component selection mask so i could drag a selection and select vertex only on that object.This is not the case with me in 8.5 , the selection mask remains on all objects so when i drag a selection the vertex of the original object get selected but i also select other object at the same time so now I have to press F8 to initiate the selection mask or hit spacebar and change the mask in the hotbox.
Finally to the question ...can anyone tell me how to chnge the right click menu so that when the vertex or face selections are chosen the componet mask changes automatically like in previous versions of Maya?

Hey John,

Might be worth having a lookin the help files in the "whats new" section, that might tell you of any changes???

ok I think I might have cured it , i turned off the ignore selection priority modifier in the selection preferences.
Hopefully this will not affect anything else in my workflow.

Thought you probably would have looked before leaping!

Glad you got it sorted, like I said it's fine with me so it must have been something with the preferences that got carried over from maya 6.
