I don't think you can do that, but I'm not sure. I'm at home now and don't have SW here, but I'll try to do some checking tomorrow. In the meantime someone else may have an idea.

I'm probably stating the obvious but why not just set up your document properties so that your dimensions are automatically on a different layer ?
This works really well as long as your current layer is set to -Per Standard- any dimensioning will happen on the layer you specified.
Perter your answer was correct and very helpful.
