Well, you're not alone trust me. The best workaround I've made is to simply keep the view in 2D Wireframe mode, activate the Viewport, and type HIDE at the command line to create a nice, clean visual perspective of the 3D model. Granted, it doesn't have all the nice shading and silhouette lines from the Visual Style, but it produces in my opinion a much better representation of your 3D model for clean visual contruction documents.
Hope this helps. If you want it to "look nice" then make a render of the scene and import the image for the atistically appealing visual.
