Being able to change the "Override" field in annotation, currently uneditable.

I converted some labels that have a background, like a flag, to annotation and have arranged them just how I like.  I often will use the 'Substitute symbols in a collection' in order to make the label background to a different color to display the differences between features.  I noticed that some features have a different value for the 'Override' field and have determined that those with a higher value include the function to inhibit the background substitution, preventing me from changing the label backgrounds.  Not sure how that happened in the first place, but now I need to change that.   According to the documentation, this cannot be changed.  I have several hundred labels so I don't really want to recreate.  Additionally, I don't know why this affected some labels and not others.


Hi @KariBuckvold 

Overrides are common when converting labels to annotation.  The label parameters used will potentially result in different overrides.
Which values are giving you issues?  Could you attach a cut down version of the annotation feature class (10 or so features) that I could test with?





@WendyHarrison the value giving me trouble is 32800.  Can I message you with the sample?  I'd rather not post here.!


@KariBuckvold a support incident would be the easiest way to get it looked at.  i'm not sure if the messaging system will accept attachements.

The Override field in an annotation feature class is not editable by design.
