center line/phantom line circle for Detail View

I've never run into this before, but, but maybe some of you have.

 

I have a client that wishes to have the defining circle of a Detail View displayed as a center line or a phantom line.  I cannot get SW to provide this.  If I edit the skecth and make the circle construction geometry, it give me the error

and closes the sketch with the solid line as before.  If I start with a construction line circle and then select the Detail View I get the same error.  I've tried other irregular shapes as well--same thing.  The construction line option is cancelled after you exit the sketch, so that if you try and edit it again it's gone.

 

I know it seems like a picky thing, but when they ask for it, you'd like to be able to give it to them.

 

I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with the same experience, a workaround, or certified solution.

 

Thanks!
