I am trying to get my labels transparent. I have converted them into annotation and unable to make the annotations transparent. I have kept annotation in the map. My annotation layer does not appear on table of contents! Ideas of getting the lables transparent or annotations transparent will be appreciated.

    Are you able to include some pictures to show what you are describing?

You asked that ages ago but, maybe useful for some, as not answered yet...

You said that you are keep your adnotation in the map but if you save them in a database enter image description here

You will have full control over the adnotation, including transparency

is it something you have been looking for?? enter image description here

You will find the annotation layer in the properties of your dataframe. I do not know (yet) how to make them transparent.
