I've got multiple county feature classes within a feature dataset. Within one of the county features I created a new field with coded subtypes. Whenever I'm editing this county in Arc and change this new fields attributes to one of these subtypes I get this pop-up:

You are changing the subtype for this feature. Do you want to change the default attributes for the feature to those defined by the new subtype?

Any ideas why this happens and how to make it stop?

From C:\Program Files(x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.4\Utilities
