Hi Joe,

I can confirm the same behavior.  I'm not sure if that behavior is done on
purpose or not.  Here is how you can work around the issue using the python

for s in GetSources().values():
    r = GetDisplayProperties(s)
    if not r.Visibility: GetActiveView().Representations.remove(r)

You can create a new python macro and assign this code to the macro.  Then
just run the macro right before exporting.
