Background mask for text in multileader

Hi:

 

I am just wondering how is possible to set up a Multileader style that creates text with a background mask.

 

I have been trying to get this feature in the Multileader style manager and I could not find it in order to avoid to set up background mask every time I create a Multileader

 

Thanks

Create your MLEADER as you desire it, copy it to a toolpalette, then reuse often is on fix.

 

Another may be to ask in the Customization Discussion area:

I have gone into the block for the hexagon for keynotes, and put a wipeout behind it. Now all of my hex keynote leaders work that way!

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

Thank you Bob for the answer,

 

I couldn’t know to play with the “block for the hexagon for keynotes”!

 

However, this is an AutoCAD issue! Background is available at the object level but not at style level in case of multiline texts style and multi leaders style!!!!

 

Fortunately, the background at style level is available for dimension style (attached)!

 

Best

...and yet, the DIMTFILL variable will let you dimension with background masks automatically. The hex thing is simply another block that one style of multileader uses. It's just a matter of locating that block and editing it in the block editor!

Actually, that does not work. If you copy an mleader you've changed to have a background mask, and paste it to you tool palatte, using that tool will create an mleader without a background mask.
