Dimensions display in certain scale and hidding in others

I am changing the scale in a project I am working on and I need to place more dimensions than before. I would like to keep as less as possible my number of layers, so I wonder if I can define what linear dimensions display at a specific scale and which ones hidde. Is that possible?

Dimensions cannot be made to be scale-dependent. So, the usual way of solving this is to place dimensions for various scale to different Layer and use Layer Combinations to display only the dimensions you need.
