Is there an easy way to remove hatch behind text?

if i add text then hatch the area it creates a blank boundary around the text, but if i add the text after hatching it continues behind it.
currently i am just deleting the hatching then redoing it which sometimes causes problems. i looked thru previous posts about hatching but i may not know the correct term.
attached an image where the top text was added before hatching and the bottom was added after for reference .

thanks in advance for any advice

I think the most common solution would be to add a Background Mask to the text.

An option would be to select the hatch and then on the ribbon choose the "Select" option and the select the text.

@dsnyderGT3KW 

I looked at your screenshot, but both text objects appear the same. Neither is behind the hatch.

 

Nonetheless, I see what you're getting at. If the text is present when you create the hatch, it can become an island, where hatching does not appear. If I might project, your question is, "How do I add islands to a Hatch?" That would be most-convenient, over using textmask, but I don't know a way.

 

Through Visual LISP, you should be able to accomplish this using the Hatch object's InsertLoopAt method. At the moment, I am unable to find an example of its use. If anyone can provide.....

I'm with @AllenJessup on this one, if you change scales using annotative text, that hatch boundary does not change. I've not used dtext since mtext became available, IMO it is a bain to Autocad (dtext that is) and I deal with Carlson overtop of C3D on a daily basis, which exclusively uses dumb text for smart things.
