Modified component visibility in assembly, Reference sets

Genius
Genius

When working in assemblies, I typically have the components set to a reference set of "Solid" so that I can have the datums and other construction geometry hidden. (The Solid reference set I created just includes the solid features of the part.)  If I want to modify a feature in one of the component parts, I have to change the reference set of that component to Entire Part; otherwise the internal sketch of that feature will not be visible. 

 

Is there a setting or something that can be changed so that the internal sketch (not external) is visible for feature modification when I have the part set to a reference set of Solid?  I basically don't want to have to switch reference sets of a component before I modify the part.  Thanks

In the Customer Defaults, Assemblies, General, Work part tab, try toggling on "Display using 'entire Part' Reference Set.
