I am having an issue with a Text Favorite updating within an SU Annotation. In short, the favorite is assigned to the feature name which in turn is the Drainage Structure Number. The text favorite within the cell updates for both a "Place Label" scenario using only a Text Favorite (white annotations as shown in the image) and also a "Place Label" scenario when using the annotation cell. However, the Text Favorite will NOT update with automatic annotation when I annotate the model (blue "bubble" annotations; and yes, the cell is placed within the annotation group for these particular inlets as shown in the attached image. The cell "bubble" places as is shown in the image, but it does not update the structure number. One can also see from the image that the text favorite does indeed work.
Could someone PLEASE let me know what is going on here? This issue is driving me crazy as I have tested just about every possibility as to why it is not updating automatically!
ORD 2020 R2
I am again commenting on this issue in order to hopefully bump it. Using a cell within an annotation group does not update the text favorites inside of the cell. Am I missing a step, or does the "Annotate Model" in Drainage and Utilities not work in this manner. Beebe, you seem to be the primary support specialist with SU. Can you please explain to me what is the matter?
Hi Mark, we were looking through old forum posts and didn't realize this one slipped by without any correspondence. We are looking into some Drawing Production issues and we would like to get some additional information from you about the issue. I can't think off hand why it wouldn't work but I am not 100% certain this 'should' work so I need to investigate some. Do you have some additional detail or perhaps a dataset with a sample so we can take a look at how you have it set up and what you expect to appear. Then if there is an issue with the program we can get the request formulated for development to research or look to add functionality to the program. Thanks.

Mark, I am doing some work here developing my D&U annotation and am getting some very inconsistent results on what updates when placed, what you are referencing I believe and what annotation updates with changes to the model. One thing that I am seeing is that behavior is much better when the label is placed with active snaps and selecting the 2D plan elements, not the 3D. I think there may be more to this, and I haven't completely isolated the various aspects of the behavior (beyond D&U annotation is unpredictable), but wanted to share at least that much.

Hey Mark, is there any news about this matter because I'm facing the same issue?
As far as I know the situation still exists, even though I am now on ORD 2020 R3. Hopefully such will be fixed in the next update of the software?
