Hi John,

Presently the only way to do this would be through code - converting the geometry of the annotation to a point.

What is the workflow you're trying to achieve?  Would it be possible to do this through labeling?  We have an option on the map properties to specify whether to rotate the point and polygon labels when the map is rotated.

General label settings—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop 

thanks,

Wendy

Hi John-

In ArcGIS Pro this setting exists as the Angle alignment property. You can choose to align symbols to the map instead of the display. This is a layer specific setting and not a general option applied to all layers.

Hi Aaron

Thanks for the response - I think that Annotations are done slightly differently.

This is the settings I get for annotation symbology

Hi Wendy the user wanted to use annotations to have more fine grain control over the label position etc..

If you have an example of the code that would be helpful
