Can I hide construction lines, or dimensions, while viewing a sketch?

Sometimes a sketch can get a bit cluttered, and it would be useful to see the "real" entities without the meta-features, e.g., the construction lines, or the dimensions.  Is this possible?  I'm picturing a simple toggles, to make one or the other invisible, much like the "Hide planes" toggles.

    @paul_1 - Ryan is correct, you cannot do what you are asking for. However, if construction lines and dimensions are making it difficult to see your sketch you may be trying to add too many sketch entities into one sketch? Try to keep sketches as simple as possible and create multiple sketches if you need to. You can create an improvement request for your idea in the category on the right (and if enough people vote for it, it will get implemented) --->
