Hiding Dimensions

Is it possible to hide dimensions from view while sketching once they have been constrained? Apologies for noob question.

    @mark_scheiner ,You can't hide the dimension in sketch.

    Would be nice to have this option. The screen can get covered with dimensions to where its impossible not to click on one when you are aiming for a vertex in the area.

    Hi @ryan_avery310 if you can’t see your sketch for dimensions then your sketch is too complex. Try to keep sketches simple. This will make them easier to edit and understand.

    So its not a bug but rather a feature to ensure sketches don't get too complex? Wouldn't this be better achieved by making a maximum on the number of features a sketch can have rather than not allowing sketches to be easily seen after a large number of dimensions have been added to it?
