Editing the text string field in annotation feature classes
We have taken over a project. And are a little green. We want to change the Annotation Roadnames... We want to keep same position etc... but change the text string. I have changed the text string but the display remains the same. How can we update the display to the new text globally. Thanks!
Mapping Center Answer:
The trick is to update the text string field while in an edit session. When you Apply your edits a set of update events are triggered, synchronizing the annotation with the attributes and vice versa. These events won't be triggered outside of an edit session, i.e., just using the field calculator. This is also presuming that you're using geodatabase annotation feature classes.
