No - you cannot turn off temp dimensions. They are there to help you model as you go.
Why would you want to turn them off?
The answer that has been given is not only not what people want to hear, but its downright arrogant and rude.
Why would you want to turn off Temporary dimensions? Well simple, when you are placing components and hundres of the **** things pop up, you DONT WANT THEM THERE! That's why we want to turn them off.
Now are there any plans to put a feature in where they can be turned on and off at will?
Lisa's question was not rude and she is right, they are there to help you. You can change their behaviour but not their appearance. Check out the options dialog, the manage temporary dimensions, and advanced family creation to better understand how they behave.
Actually, a lot of people (including myself) believe that listening dimensions are part of what make REVIT a very successfull tool.
If you are interested in making them disappear, simply add that to the wishlist in the autodesk website. People here are trying to help you.
