I don't think this is possible without a custom routine. If you were on 2005 or later, you could convert the TEXT to MTEXT and turn on background masking for all MTEXT entities.

I am currently producing a drawing that has about 50 text items that need to have a wipeout surrounding each item. I have created polylines around each text item with the "TCIRCLE" command. Is it possible to create multiple wipeouts rather than having to individually pick each polyline? I am running ACAD 2004.
Howdoya do that?Originally Posted by rkmcswain
perhaps if used the tcircle command to create rectangles, then typed on wipeout, pressed enter for the polyline command, and selected the rectangles. It works in 2006, but I dont' know about your version.
Do you mean how to turn on background masking for selected MTEXT entities?Originally Posted by Galingula
See mtextmask.zip at http://www.hyperpics.com/customizati..._downloads.asp
I didn't know about this feature, so I looked in Help for it. Seems to me that if I turn on background mask, I would expect it to not show what is behind the MTEXT box. This seems to be the case, but only when the box is selected. Unselected I can still see right thru itOriginally Posted by rkmcswain
Thanks for your help but the command will only let me pick one rectangle when in wipeout mode.Originally Posted by pennylove
