multi-line text and text with background mask

multi-line text and text with background mask

I would like a multi-line text menu identical to what is in autocad, including the options drop down and the symbols.

 

I know with Revit that within each text style I can choose opaque or transparent, but opaque only applies to the area of the text itself. I would like a background mask identical to what is in autocad that covers the entire area of the text box.

The ability to specify if the bordered/boxed area is opaque or transparent. Currently Text can be set to opaque but area between text and border is transparent.

The ability to specify if the bordered/boxed area is opaque or transparent. Currently Text can be set to opaque but area between text and border is transparent. The should probably be an option too for extending the opaque option beyond the border outline to give border a little breathing room.

regarding symbols you can find them when editing text as below screenshot. However this doesn't work if editing dimensions

As for opaque text, please see my idea here and vote for

Border/Boxed Text Opaque Option - Autodesk Community

apologies about the duplicate posts in this idea, I was having issues uploading it on the day

Please ask @kimberly.fuhrman  to combine your idea with the opaque idea I created as the same. 

 

And see this idea for multi line parameters

multi-line text parameter formatting options - Autodesk Community

In edit mode, the background runs out to the border (at least for the border offset I'm using) and it looks SOOOOO much better.
