3d viewport covering objects?

I'm having a problem with a 3d hidden viewport covering anything 'behind' it in paperspace. It's been a while since I've done any real 3d work, but I don't remember this happening before.

I need to put some callouts over the view in paperspace, is there a way to keep the viewport from covering things?

Use the "HIDDEN" option for shadeplot and Visual Style not "3D HIDDEN". This has been a problem with display and plotting since Visual Styles were introduced.

3D Hidden creates a pseudo-bitmap image of the viewport (including background) rather than the normal vector graphics (no background). Those background pixels fill the vp and block anything else in that space.

Hmm, I thought it was wierd that I was using the '3d hidden' option... it seems I don't have a '2d hidden' option available to me in the shadeplot list... is there a way to replace or find it?
