I have created a new section head to conform with my office standards.  I want the section head to "mask" whatever it is covering so in the family I created a masking region with an invisable line in the section head (shown in red on the picture) and that works to mask what is behind the section head but it also masks the horizontal line in the head that separates the detail number from the sheet number as you can see in the second picture.  Is there a way to send the masking region behind that line in the family?  The actual "send to back" option is not available.

When working in a family, 2D elements are placed sequentially according to when they are added in the family.  Masking regions must be drawn before detail lines in the same area.

I started from scratch and drew the horizontal separation line as the absolute last line and it is still being masked behind.  Any other ideas?

Split your masking region into two half circles.

I tried that but then I couldnt get the regions to rotate with the section so I tried to split it in 1/4's and it sort of worked but you could still see little "ticks" of the linework from the project in the section head and I can't get any closer with the masking region to the horizontal line in the head without it masking the line.  I thought there would be an easy solution to this.  Hard to believe this isn't standard in Revit.

I got it to work using the underscore text method that someone else had posted on here.  Its really not an ideal way but I guess its the only way for now.  Thanks for the help.
