Active Annotation Target

This field allows you to determine where placed graphics (using the Graphics Tab) are stored. This tool allows you to store graphics as part of an annotation feature class layer or as graphics within a redline session. The Active Annotation Target tool appears on the Session Manager toolbar by default.

If you select Mobile Graphics from the Active Annotation Target list, any graphics placed on the map are stored as graphics with the current redline session. These graphics may be sent between the field and enterprise. However, once the session is closed, the graphics go with it. They are NOT maintained as part of the data once the session is gone.

If you select an Annotation layer from the list (e.g., ElectricNotes), any graphics placed on the map are stored as part of that annotation layer. Because they are part of an annotation feature class layer, these graphics may be posted to the geodatabase and maintained long after the session is gone. The Active Annotation Target field is populated with ArcFM Annotation feature classes using model names. Refer to Configure ArcFM Viewer (Graphic Annotation section) for information about how to properly configure these feature classes for use with this tool.

Both types of graphics may be selected on the map using the Select Elements tool and deleted using the Delete Selected Graphic tool.
