Show Main Assy as Ref in Sub Assy

I have a sub assembly that I am making a drawing of. The assembly drawing needs to also display the main assembly as a reference part (in phantom lines). The sub assembly is made up of flexible hoses that need their connection points referenced.

Inserting the main assembly into the drawing, so that I can see both the main assembly and the sub assembly together, messes up the parts list and balloons.


There must be a way to dislay the sub assembly in the main assembly and still have the part list and ballons reference the sub assembly?

You would think there would be.


(I've fiddled with doing this, after lunch I'll try looking for some of the methods I've tried and we can figure out which worked best.)
