Here’s another new cool feature for 2013. In the Insert Components PropertyManager, you can select multiple components at a time and then insert each one in succession without returning to the Property Manager. Also, if you double-click the assembly origin, all the selected components are inserted at once, each with respect to the origin.
A quick video on the new feature
