REVIT: Masking Regions prevent Material Tagging in Sections & Elevations

Ever run into an issue where you are tagging by material and no matter what you do the tag won't populate in a certain view?

Scenario: Grab bars are inserted on the walls in a toilet stall in the model. Interior elevation callouts are placed. Boxed material tags are added in the plan acting as keynotes. Interior Elevations views are activated, but no matter how the designer tries to select the grab bar being cut (side section/elevation), they still see a boxed question mark. The boxed material tag works in the forward elevation and in the plan, so what is the problem?

Solution: Edit the grab bar family and remove the masking regions applied to the left or right view.
