"Envelope" Configuration Specific Properties - SolidWorks 2017.

My name is Kaivalya and I have been a SolidWorks user for the last five years. I have been facing some difficulty with the 'Envelope' functionality added in SW 2017. Whenever I update my assembly through programs/macros, some of the parts are converted to envelopes at random. This creates an issue if I want the parts to be displayed in BOM on my drawing sheet, since envelopes are not included in BOM.


Can anyone kindly suggest a way around for this? Is it possible to define a default setting for part/assembly templates wherein the part doesn't change to envelope unless I do so manually?
