I have an 'it was fine on Friday but now is not working on Monday' question. My background masks is displaying a border (which is not desired) and they are not masking the backound but instead are masking the text. What gives? (see attached)
This issue is specific to one drawing. It seems to effect all background masks regardless of style. They are set to use drawing background color. And border option is set to false in the label styles.
The last items I worked on in the last sesson where to create a corridor and an intersection.
Also, if you happen to know why the pen table is printing correctly that would help as well. The attached image was printed using a black/white pen file. Go figure.
My first guess would that the masks are out of desired display order. Set their display order to "send under object" and choose the text. Then type TFRAMES in the command line to toggle display of the frames. I try not to use masks unless necessary. I find it easier to use MTEXT and turn on text masking as needed.
