Remove Background Masking from Mtext

Remove the background mask from all mtext in an AutoCAD drawing.

This is a simple but powerful LISP routine from Leland Leahy. It will remove the background mask from all mtext in an AutoCAD drawing. To use it, load the LISP routine and type in the command Demask. That's it — there is no selection to make. The LISP code selects all the mtext in the drawing, and removes the background mask if it exists. If you run this routine and there is no mtext, or no mtext with masking applied, it won't harm anything. You could easily modify the code to ask for a selection set also, if this meets your needs.

Very cool. I just tweaked it to actually ADD the background mask for times that we need to add it to all of the text that may not have it already. Thanks!
