Creating Annotation Layers
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

Using the Display Manager, you can create and style layers for freestanding text that is not associated with features. Text features on text layers are stored in a data table and are checked in like any other type of feature.

NoteAnnotation layer style settings (which apply to the entire layer) are stored with the layer. Style overrides (which apply only to a specific annotation feature) are stored with that feature in the data table.

The Annotation text layer uses expressions to generate text features from corresponding entries in the annotation data table. Most users need not modify these expressions, though they offer advanced capabilities for specific uses.
