Press the "down arrow" in the Design View Representations button and choose "other...". Create a new design view representation and choose activate. Now you can set the design view as you like it by using the "section view" tool to slice it or hide different parts. I use this feature alot when working with assemblies because it helps me to quickly set the assembly in a state where i can see the specific features i want to edit. The design view is selectable when creating a drawing and will be identical in the drawing.
Press the "down arrow" on the Design View Representations button and choose "Other..". Create a new design view and choose activate. Set the design view using the section view tool. You can also hide parts you dont want to be visible. The design view is selectable when creating drawings and will be identical to the design view. Tip! The design view is very usefull to quickly set the assembly in state where only the feature you want to edit is visible, for example an assembly in an enclosure.
