    text background

    Hi,
    need your ideas and tips to make a text note have really a white background, and not only where the text is (see picture).
    thanks.

      Yep, but not on sheets.... Only title blocks will achieve this I guess.
      thanks for your answer.

        You could create a drafting view that has the text and masking region behind. Then drag that view to where you want it on the sheet (make sure it has no view title). Kind of a clumsy workaround...

          I would set the text background to opaque rather than transparent in the text properties. This should give the result you are after.

            Humm, If you look at the picture, the text has white background, but not until the border.It is set to opaque in fact. Only the letters are concerned, I would prefer the entire area within borders.

              Sorry, misunderstood what you are after, (message to self - don't read so quickly!) and yep as others have noted it is going to be a bit of a kludge work around.

                You can do a masking region on a sheet. Not sure how it will work on text though.

                  Use a Generic Annotation.

                  You can place a hardcoded text if it's something you will need to re-use every time.
                  You can also create a instance text parameter if you want to be able to retyp the text as needed.
                  use a filled region with invisible lines and white filling as a background and you're good to go. Do NOT use a masking region, this won't work.

                    You can't place a Generic anno in a 3D view though, looks like the image in the OP is a 3D view
