Edit Multiple Annotation Classes Simultaneously?

Good morning! I have converted a bunch of labels to annotation and am now moving them around to their final locations--it would be easier if I could be free to edit all of them at the same time. For example, when labels from several datasets are indicating locations in close proximity, each one will have to move a little, but I am only able to edit whichever one is in the current annotation editing session. Is there a way to edit all annotation simultaneously? Thank you!

Mapping Center Answer:

If your annotation feature classes are not all in the same database, you will not be able to edit them simultaneously. On the other hand, if you have all of your annotation feature classes in the same database, you will be able to select multiple labels from different annotation feature classes and move them all at once.

If your annotation feature classes are currently in different databases, you might consider combining annotation feature classes.
