I am using OpenRoads Designer Connect edition and am attempting to create some plan-profile sheets. I used the named boundary tool to create plan and profile drawing models and then utilized "model annotation" to annotate the alignment and profile, however I then need to drag some labels around to remove conflict as well as edit some of the labels to remove part of the label that the client does not want on the sheets. It seems pretty random but the annotations will reset to the original position and contain all of the original information (undo my deletions). How can I stop this from happening?
I have tried setting the update fields automatically to false, however this caused my stationing on the alignment to start at 0+00, instead of the 50+00 that it is set to, and did not always keep it from happening.
I also tried dropping the cells several times so as to loose the smart features they contain, however several of the multi line annotations break down into unusable pieces.
Please help as this is incredibly frustrating.
I came up with a workaround. Its not exactly a solution, but it does stop the annotation from automatically updating.

That is an interesting work around Zach, one that I did not think of.
I have seen that this reannotation is usually due to a snap rule being applied to the alignment to some CAD graphic. I have acutally seen this happen in real time where a snap rule was applied to a shared cell. Once I remove the snap rule to the cell the alignment no longer reannotated. I would suggest you toggle off the "persist snap rules" toggle on the feature definition toolbar.
