Remove wipeout?

I have a piece of mtext with a wipeout that I can't get rid of. I turn on frames but the frame is linked to the mtext. When I try and erase the frame I lose the text. I can't seem to remember how to disassociate the wipeout from the mtext.

Check & see if background mask is turned on in
the text properties.

Unfortunatly it is not a mask. I have currently resized the wipeout so its very small and does not hide background objects but I would like to know what happened. I used to be able to erase wipeouts and not lose the text. I thought there was some kind of variable that sets whether or not the frame is attached to the object?

turning off grouping CTRL-SHIFT-A and see if they can be selected

Here are two ways to remove the wipeout from your text.



Command entry: textunmask

Then select the text .



Or by hitting CTRL+ALT+A to toggle PICKSTYLE=0 you can turn off the group association that is connecting the wipeout to the text. With PICKSYTLE=0 you can erase the wipeout frame without erasing the text. If you do it this way may want to set PICKSTYLE=1 when you are done. Again CTRL+ALT+A will toggle PICKSTYLE back and forth between 1 and 0.
