Multibody part detailing : Solidworks incapable to exclude a body from section view

I regularly work in muti-body part model (weldments). The problem is during detailing. I am not able to exclude a body from a section view.

For example, Shafts, fasteners, ribs should not be sectioned. Please refer the attached screw shaft. Here I'm not able to exclude shaft from getting sectioned.

I know, there is no direct option to exclude bodies from section view scope. I'm accomplishing the requirements thru some indirect methods. Please let me know if there is any method...


Also requesting SolidWorks to consider to add the option to exclude body (Just like part 'exclude option' in assembly drawing section views).
