Can I show a box around text while having the 'Outline Masked'?
SoftPlan Version:

Just like the title suggest, I am trying to have a text with the box visible and masked the lines underneath it.  Is this possible to do?

 

The two examples below show the outline masked (left) and only a box selected (right), but I'd to have both attributes available.

Nope. Setting text to Masked also masks the outline. If you want to show the box on masked text you would need to draw a box shape slightly larger than the text box.

Thanks Bill!  It's not

Thanks Bill!  It's not something I need often, but I've run across it a few times.  I usually just draw a box around the text like you suggested.
