Is it a know issue that when you have a General Note style with a Dragged State where the Display is set to Stacked Text. If Background Mask is set to True. The Mask does not encompass the whole text.
Or have I missed something?

Change your maximum text width in the Dragged state to either 0 or wider than the text
Thanks Jeff. That was the culprit. I hadn't realized that that would effect the mask also. But it makes sense. Just have to edit a few pieces of text to make them stack the way I want. But little trouble compared to the masking problem. I had to use a couple of wiperouts to get the plots out this afternoon. But now I'll erase them and fix up the notes.
Do you use notes for a lot of labeling? We haven't up until now. But I'm getting tired of the Annotative vs Civil troubles. I can deal with it. But I'm not getting it across to others why some thing do this and other do that. So if we can stick to one method it would be simpler. Unfortunately Notes are still a bit Kludgy.
I don't use the General Notes as much as I'd like to. Multileaders seem to do an overall better job at this time, for me anyway. ALthough I do have many notes, that must be on every sheet, for which I've created a style so I can quickly add them.
I tend to use Multi leaders (rightly or wrongly) over Civil Labels as they are much easier to edit etc although Civil Labels do have their uses in the right place e.g. profile views
I use Civil 3D notes as much as possible due to the way the wipeout ajusts itself to stay wrapped around the text.
although if i need to copy multiple notes to multiple sheets then mtext works more efficiently.
