Detailing a Weldment

Using 2014

 

I made a weldment and am trying to create individual prints for each part of the weldment.  In the model I created a display state for each part of the weldment, hiding the pieces I didn't want.  Now when I go to make a print I drag the weldment onto the sheet and select the display state for the part I want.  The problem is, when I go to dimension it, the dimension tool is selecting the lines of the hidden pieces.  If a hidden part sits in front of say a hole, on the part I am try to dimension, I cannot dimension the hole.  Is there a way to only select lines that are visible on the screen?

 

 

I am open to workflow suggestions as far as detailing weldments and selection individual parts of weldments, also.
