make a part always appear in drawing with shown hidden edges?

One part I use in most assemblies is hidden in most views, and I currently have to expand view trees to select the part(s) and make it Show Hidden Edges ("SHE"). I do this every single time I use this part, for each view. I do not wish to make the entire view SHE, but only relevant parts.

 

Is there any way to set a part to always appear in any drawing with hidden lines visible? This part is static and doesn't change, but gets commonly used. This part is in an assembly. The drawing is of the assembly. I could share an image or model if needed, but this is a very general question.

I'd assume if this was set, that I could always manually Hide Hidden Edges instead if this was desired.

Looking for a way to reduce one step in nearly every view I make...

Perhaps if there's no such functionality, I could find or write a simple macro to alter just that part's view setting across all instances within a completed drawing.
