cosmetic thread in xsec drg

Our modelling practice is to model threads as helical cuts for pictorial presentations, but to also include a cosmetic thread for the drawings in which we supress the helical cut. I have one which has a dowel pin cut going through it so I've had to insert the cosmetic thread before the dowel cut. In the drawing the cosmetic thread shows as a full rectangle across the xsec view. All the drawing options are set correctly as I have other cosmetics which appear correctly on the drawing ie yellow line with others erased. I've tried all options in the dtl file and can't erase the lines of the cosmetic. Any ideas ?? It's as though the cut through the cosmetic affects the drg.

sorry for the delay, I have to put in the cosmetic before the cut as the cosmetic will not go in after it, I get feature failure.
