How do I select and delete multiple dangling reference dimensions in a weldment simultaneously?

I have a large weldment with a variety of reference dimensions for various features. I'm running this part through Drive Works, which deletes all of the features I don't need each time I run the project. After the new model is generated, all of the reference dimensions in the model that were attached to features that have been deleted become dangling. There are a LOT of these reference dimensions that go dangling, and I'd like to get rid of them so I can see and work with the ones that are still attached. Is there a way to multi-select these dangling dimensions, aside from CTRL-clicking? Drive Works can delete dimensions in the drawing, so there's no need to run a macro or anything there. These dims are all in the model itself.


For reference, I'm running SW 2014 x64, SP5.0. I'll be upgrading to SW 2017 x64 and the latest service pack within the next three weeks or thereabouts, so if there's a way to do it in SW 2017, please post that solution as well.
