Send masking region to background


When creating Families it is sometimes appropriate to use Masking Regions in order to help define how it should be represented in certain orientations (views), such as in Plan.

But the Masking Region’s default behaviour is to put the region in front of other elements like lines thereby hiding required elements.

To overcome this and force it to the background, select the Masking Region and then uncheck the Draw in Foreground property.
