arcgis map

clip_analysis tool is not working properly for Annotation layer provided the output in another projection system. Anyone else encountered this.


To recreate the issue:


Open python window


set outcoordinatesystem set to another.

Try out clip_analysis for annotation layer.

The output is not as expected. The annotation text is shown at different place.



Please find the following associated snippet


import arcgisscripting

gp = arcgisscripting.create()

gp.OutputCoordinateSystem = "4326" #different wkid

gp.clip_analysis("<<Input Annotation Layer>>","Export_Output","<<Output Annotation Layer>>")


output is not projected correctly as expected


Please help me out in this case. thanks for upcoming help.
