I want to be able to create a masking region for my section callouts, but it makes the middle line dissapear, there doesn't seem to be a way to create a draworder for the center line of the section tag to bring it above the masking region.  Nor is there a way to set a workplane of the masking region to send it behind.  Am i missing something?  or is there a way around this?  see attached pdf

This is a problem with the section heads.  We use annotation and use underscores "_" with the attached text properties for our underlines

You could create 2 masking regions (2 halves of the circle) with the straight line visible in both, problem is it would only work with the orientation you have shown. If you had a section head that was horizontal, it wouldn't work. I try to avoid placing section heads over objects when I can. In the instances where that is not possible, I create a circular masking region with invisible lines in the view over the section head and pin it all down.

The solution I provided you is your best and easiest option.  Johnzo that is a lot of extra steps.  Nobody likes to have 2 separate heads (one for vertical and one for horizontal) so using my method solves the problem without needing to worry about masking regions in the project.

We messed with this several years ago and never found a good answer.  If you want the text visible, you can edit the family and set the text background to opaque so at least you can read the text in busy areas.

 

Put this on the official AUGI / Revit wishlist.
