Callouts or Annotations Appearing Behind Hatches in Paper Space

Issue

You've placed callouts or annotations in Paper Space on your layout, but the callout always falls behind a hatch instead of on top of it, as pictured to the right.

 

 

Callouts are hidden behind all Model Space linework and hatches, including callouts with masks.
