I recently learned this great tip and am eager to share it here.
Adding text masking to Text & MText is easy in 2011 but many people just give up when it comes to adding them to Dimensions or MultiLeaders. Here’s how:
1) Before starting – Use one of the DRAWORDER commands to make sure that the dimension/MLeader is at the front.
- the TEXTTOFRONT command will bring all text objects including Mleaders and Dimensions to the front
- The HATCHTOBACK command will send all hatches to the back of the drawing order.
2) Select the dimension or multi-leader > Right-Click > Select Properties
Now, your Dimensions and MultiLeaders can be easily read when the are in a hatch or are overlapping an object.
