Help - How to hide dimensions in sketches

I'm working with a series of 3D sketches. Some sketches must remain visible as reference. While creating the sketches, the dimension call-outs grow too distracting from the linear sketches. Is it possible to hide, or toggle off/on the dimensions while leaving the sketch geometry visible?

right click on the sketch in the browser and choose hide dimensions.

Aha, that was the option I was searching for.

 

1. Right click the sketch in the feature manager

2. Select Dimension Visiblity

 

I'm curious if I can create a short-cut key to toggle the dimension on/off? Is it possible to create a custom keyboard key?

I am sure you can find or make a macro to do this this way it does it to all sketches.
