Unable to change annotation attributes

Hello -
I am using ArcGIS 10.1. I have converted Maplex labels to annotation (not feature linked) and am looking to edit the annotation attributes. I can alter the attributes in the Attributes window but the annotation on the map does not change. see the screenshot below where NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR TERRE-NEUVE-ET-LABRADOR is aligned to the centre in the Attributes window but not on the map. Similarly the case with other labels.

Has anyone else come across this? Is there a solution for this?


Addendum: I've created another annotation layer at a different scale and was able to modify this one as exepcted. Both annotation data layers are stored in the same geodatabase.
