    Callout heads show material pattern underneath

    I'm about to rip my hair out! Our callout tags on our drawings show the material hatching of whatever is underneath them and this is making it hard to read what the tag actually says. I've edited the callout head family. I've made the labels opaque, I added a masking region, and I even added a white solid filled region behind the whole thing and no matter what I do nothing changes. I even created a new callout head label family with all of this. Its loaded into the project and I can SEE it in the window for selecting callout heads but when I select it, it looks the same as all the others! Please help, I think I'm going crazy

    So I figured out what was wrong. I had a coworker look at this and apparently i was selecting a Callout head when I was meant to be selecting a section head. He loaded an opaque section head instead and my drawing look exactly how i want them.
