Some of my offpage connectors, the text within will dissapear.
Using the annotation visiblity option in the bottom sometimes will fix it (after another regen). Sometimes it will do nothing.
In some cases now I am noticing the text is extremely bolded rather than missing. Or the text style goes back to STD when it should be Roman-C.
I do not know of any steps to reproduce this error. It happens on quite a few of our drawings.
Keep in mind, that if the text is displayed, regardless of what AutoCAD shows, it will plot out correctly as RomanC. If the text is not shown in AutoCAD it will not plot.
Moving the connector around will make the text reappear, but will be gone next launch.

I believe they are in fact two seperate issues here:
1. Blank Connector
2. Improper text connector.
1. Blank Connection, may show up via anno visibility or moving the connector, or typing in a field... but plotting WILL not show the connection.
2. Connector either shows up as STD or BOLD. Regen and Anno visiblity will usually turn STD -> BOLD or BOLD -> STD. If they turn into ROMAN-C (the correct kind) it will still plot out either STD or BOLD.
I think I've found a "solution" to this problem. I found that if you right click on an offpage connector (that is having problems with the test disappearing) and you choose "Bring to Front" under the drawing order submenu it seems to solve this problem.
