Thanks for background mask tools!

I am the new CAD manager for a mid-size civil engineering firm that has just upgraded to 2005. Their CAD work uses a lot of legacy or old school CAD techniques and lisp routines. One of them being the use of 3dfaces to mask text through an old custom Lisp routine. As you know 3D faces can have far reaching implications when plotting (polylines, arrowheads, fills etc).
So when I saw the 2005 text mask I thought finally I can show my users (what should be) the best practice. Well the main problem we had was you cannot setup a default border size! Ugh! And some users felt it was clumsy to use the properties box to add a mask to Mutliple Mtext objects.

So let me just say again.. THANK YOU!
