Using View Reps for Detail Views in .idw's, some parts are still visible...

I've had this issue now for quite a while.  Seems to only happen with wires that are made in the Cable & Harness module.  And the odd part is that not all wires do this and not all View Rep/Detail views do this.

 

Regardless of wether I have a wire visible or not in a locked View Rep it still shows up in the Detail View on the .idw.  And yes, I have the 'associative' check box checked.

 

I've unchecked the check box, nothing.  Rechecked the box, nothing.  Updated the views individually, nothing.

 

This is ridiculous.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated it, thanks.

Could you provide the dataset here and send me @ river-yijiang.cai@autodesk.com for further investigation?

Thanks,

I'd have to see if I can do that with proprietary designs.  In the event that I can't is there any ideas as to why this could be happening?

I was able to finally get it to work.  Here's how:

 

I had to go and Edit View each of the effected Detail Views.  Change the View Rep to the Default view, click OK.  Go back in and click on the View Rep that I need it to be and then the wires disappear.

 

Something is definitely wrong there.
