Use property manager to suppress multiple features

I want to use a checkbox in the Property Manager to toggle the states of multiple features. If the checkbox is checked then the feature state would be:


A unsuppressed

B unsuppressed

C unsuppressed




D suppressed

E suppressed

F suppressed.


If the checkbox is unchecked then:


A suppressed

B suppressed

C suppressed




D unsuppressed

E unsuppressed

F unsuppressed.



I don't see a way to do this. The only possibility I have come up with is to let the checkbox suppress and unsuppressed one feature (like A) and then do formulas in the Design Table to handle the rest. May main issue with that is the Property Manager (Configure Part/Assembly in an assembly) seems to overwrite the formulas with simple values when the Property Manager is called up and a value is changed. If the Property Manager needs to write a new configuration then it does not copy the formulas down to the next row.
