I have about 400 annotation features in ArcMap 10. The style is a simple text box with an arrow. The annotation draws correctly when viewed up close on screen but the arrow detaches from the text box when printing or when zoomed out to view the entire 30x42" page. I switched from labels to annotation to avoid problems like this. Any ideas on fixing the printing issue?
Perhaps the annotation scale settings are your issue? The information at this link is relevant to an older version of ArcMap, but the same principles apply. There's a section on reference scales towards the bottom. I believe this may be the cause of your issue. Hope this resolves your problem.
