I am currently using FME to push data from CAD to my Enterprise GDB. The CAD Text I want to push to an Annotation feature class. What goes along with this text are leader lines showing where the text is referring too.

Q. Can I simply specify polyline geometry for the Annotation feature class, and have the FME script push these lines as well into the Annotation feature class?

If this can be done, I can limit the number of feature classes to create. Currently, I create a separate polyline feature class to store leader lines.

Thanks for your input,
Jesse

You cannot load line features into an annotation feature class.  Annotation classes technically contain polygon features.  Your current approach with loading the leader lines into a line feature class is the correct approach.
