There are several pick filter options in the lower right user interface. These selections should also include "solid" as there are times such as mirroring when the whole solid does need selected.
The only other way I can see this accomplished is by selecting the part off the top of the feature tree. Unfortunately this includes everything when only the solid is needed.
Try hovering over the part with your cursor, when you see the entire part highlightpress the right mouse button down and select pick from list, you should be able to grab the "solid" from the list. I'm not sure this is exactly what you are looking for and you may already be aware of this selection tool but it is worth sharing with the community.
The Smart filter seems to pick the solid body but I agree, there should be a Solid Body filter.
Our Engineering department loves the tutorials that you present online.
I've tried what you've suggested but there doesn't appear to be any cursor position that will hilight the entire part. Perhaps there are solids that this works with but even if it works some of the time it is not very user friendly.
Since there are other pick filter options there really should be a "solids" pick option for the sake of functionality and grouping with the other filter options.
