2D drawing views/border based on solid geometry

Is there a way to set drawing views to resize the view border based on solid geometry?  I've searched high and low and have not been able to find a solution so I decided to start a new thread. 

 

The problem: when creating new views on a drawing Creo bases the size of the border on hidden geometry (surfaces or curves).  This often effects an entire assembly because of master surface references or sketches that are much larger than the part.  

 

For a long time we've just clipped the view border by doing "partial view" and drawing a spline, but this is time consuming and not precise.  Defining partial views would be a lot better if it could be done using a rectangle rather than a spline.  I'm trying to streamline our process with updated drawing templates, but the huge view borders make using template-defined views unwieldy and can move the actual solid part way off the drawing.

 

Is there a hidden .dtl option or something that will drive views based on solid geometry?
