Setting for image display improvement

Hello, Is there a setting or something that can be done to improve the poor quality that I have when viewing an assembly?  I have a sheet metal assembly with components added to the opposite (hidden) side of a sheet metal part.  Even though the components are on the other side, the edges of the components are visible.  The screenshot shows these edges that are visible.  This is a pain for when I want to do a screenshot of the assembly, but the edges are visible.  If I zoom in enough, the edges disappear, but that's not convenient for when trying to do a screenshot of a whole assembly.  I haven't encountered this situation from working with other CAD softwares, so not sure what is the fix.  A recommended setting change or another NX work around would be helpful.  Thanks

I turned off the edge emphasis and it cleared up the visibility of the components that are on the other side of the sheet metal part, so that is good.  Unfortunately, when I turned off the edge emphasis, it also removed the text that I had on my labels. 

Is there something else that I can change so that I can have the right visibility (or invisibility) of parts that shouldn't be visible but also see the text on labels?  Thanks

I'm guessing that your 'text on labels' is text subtracted or united onto the models?

If that's the case the only option I can think of is to make them deeper or more pronounced so they get displayed.
