Hey Lisa

As a sub d surface is derived basically from a poly surface using a smoothing algorythm (sorry for the tech crap) I find it best to switch on the poly proxy (select object>right click>polygon) Then in the Attribute Editor>mesh component display>then where it says 'off' put it to 'wire'. Should do the trick.
