Text background not working

TC Delux 2016.
When I set the the text background color to say, white, the text does not block out what is behind it (eg, a line). Adjusting the layer order, or "bring to front" makes no difference.
However, it works fine for multitext or with dimensions.
Any help appreciated.

Hi DesM,

    it appears to me, I'm guessing here, that you have checked Flexible text under Properties?
    If so, then select Solid fill under Brush properties.
    This will prevent lines showing through the text.
    Alternatively, use Standard text.

This is what I get with Standard and Flexible Text in Deluxe 2016, using different settings.
