TEXTMASK (Express Tool)
Creates a blank area behind selected text or mtext objects.
TEXTMASK hides objects by creating a mask object behind selected text or mtext. The
mask object is offset from the text by a specified value.
Text objects are grouped together with the mask objects so that they moved, copied,
and erased together. To update the mask after editing the text, run TEXTMASK again,
and select the text item to be updated. The previous mask object is erased and a new
one is created. A companion command, TEXTUNMASK, removes masks from text.
correctly in plots, even though they might appear correctly in the display area. At
plot time, AutoCAD processes the model viewports before processing paper space layout
objects. This makes it impossible for anything in paper space to be “on top of” anything
in model space.

|Solid||Creates a 2D solid object in a specified color.|
A Wipeout is a custom object created by the WIPEOUT tool. Since the Wipeout object
is similar to an image, it has the same requirements for plotting. You need a raster-capable
plotter with an ADI 4.3 raster-capable driver or the system printer driver. Masking
does not plot properly if the Hide Lines option is used while plotting. One advantage
of using a Wipeout mask is that what you see on screen is what you get on your plot.
The 3Dface created by TEXTMASK has all of its edges set to invisible. This option
is useful if you do not have a raster-capable plotter. The Hide Lines option must
be used while plotting for the mask effect to work. With this option, masked text
does not look masked on screen.
With this option, masked text appears masked in the drawing area. Also, masks can
be colored to highlight the text. Masking does not plot properly if the Hide Lines
option is used when plotting.
