  3. Optionally, choose the layer with which the annotation group is associated and set a reference scale, or set the range of scales in which the annotation group is visible.

  4. Click OK.
You can also create a new annotation group by right-clicking the data frame in the table of contents, choosing Properties, clicking the Annotation Groups tab, then clicking the New Group button.
You can associate an annotation group with a layer after you've created it.
