I have created an annotation feature class in Arc10 and when viewed within the database, looks great. However, whenever I go into catalog and export the annotation feature class to a shapefile, it turns the shapefile into a polygon layer. The Text is still within the attribute table, and when going into properties to set to proper fields, it does not display. I have only appended the annotation and have not feature linked them. This worked on dummy data, but now it is screwy on project data. Is there something that I am doing or a way to export annotation within a .mdb to a .shp?
