Enclosure command

I assume the intent of this command is for packaging as well as material size required if it's a machined part, question is why is the feature itself default to a solid body instead of a construction body?  I have to "toggle to construction" to hide the enclusure feature in an assembly or on a print.  If I leave it as a solid body and hide it, I assumed when back in assembly I could toggle the "last saved" in the show/hide command but it doesn't work.   anyone else use the command?

 

I'm using ST9

My understanding is that the Enclosure Command is an alternate way to create simplifications.  This sort of automates the process of picking the external faces. I do beleive that it is intended to be a solid body as this simplification is what should be shown at the next higher reference.

Hmmm, Well maybe I'm not using it for it's intended purpose then... Seems ideal for creating a packaging size or material size.
