Copying and pasting annotation features

You can copy and paste annotation features into the same or a different annotation feature class. The way the annotation symbology is stored can impact the display of the pasted annotation.

  1. Click the Edit tool Edit Tool or the Edit Annotation tool Edit Annotation on the Editor toolbar and select the annotation.
  2. Hold down the SHIFT key while clicking features to select additional features.
  3. Click the Copy button Copy on the Standard toolbar.
  4. Click the Paste button Paste on the Standard toolbar.
  5. Click the layer in which to store the pasted feature. When copying and pasting features, you choose the layer in which to store the new feature. This allows you to retain the attribute values from the copied feature, rather than having them be overwritten with values from a feature template.
  6. Click OK. The feature is pasted on top of the original feature.
