If the NX software is working correctly (depends on what version yo uare on) any PMI that is visible in any view should be visible in 2D drafting after you inherit PMI for that view. You may find, as I have, that there is limitation to the display of the inherited PMI. Changing the view on the drawing to something other then full scale (1/1) may cause the PMI to spread out unexpectingly on the sheet. This will cause you to manually relocate PMI to fit, after each update. You most often have to turn it alloff, then back on again to see updates. It is not as automatic as regular master model drafting.

Regarding the PMI in a detail view.
When you create a detail view in drafting, NX by default makes it dependent. It means that whatever was visible, or not visible in the main view, will be be repeated in a detail view.
In order to change it, turn on or off the visibility of PMI in a detail view as follows:
I hope this helps.

A Detail View is really a drawing convention. An enlarged view is placed on a drawing to provide additional detail on a specific area of a part. The concept of a detail view is not covered in the 3D Annotation Standards and in its basic form in 3D a detail view is zoom in. For those that want to be able to retrieve a specific zoomed in location on a model you can select a model view and MB3 > Save. This will save the orientation including the zoom factor. Next time you want to retrieve this you can double click on a model view (this will make the model view the work view) and then double click on the model view again (will Reset Orientation). Some also use the Box type Section option to limit a model display.
Hope this helps
