Frame Generator Sketch and Plane Visibility

I added another extrusion profile to my structural shapes library, using the same method as the others a few years ago.  It works, but the new extrusion now shows up with its profile sketch, start and end planes, and driven dimension visible.  The old stuff doesn't (like I would expect).  I have all planes in the published part turned off, not marked for export, etc., just like in the old ones.  What's going on here?  How do I turn this off?  Inventor 2012 SP2.

When I open the extrusion separately, the work features to not display.  But, the it's also shown as the "default" color not as material.  Why does it default to "default" not "as material" like everything else?

Nevermind.  My parts have a defualt as well as master design view.  The old ones only had a master.  I deleted the design view, turn everything off in the master, and viola!
