Layer masking keeps referencing old masking layer

I'm working with layer masking in ArcMap 10.6 and having issues getting ArcMap to recognizes my layer masking changes. I created a feature outline mask from an annotation layer (not feature-linked) stored in a FGDB. I enabled layer masking and masking work correctly. I had to move a label in the annotation layer, but created a new feature outline mask to reflect the updated annotation layer. I removed the old mask from the project, but when I try to enable layer masking using the new mask, the map still masks using the old mask.

I've tried:

  • turning layer masking on/off
  • clearing ArcMap's display cache
  • deleting files from the Windows TEMP folder
  • rebooting ArcMap and the computer

Any ideas on how to get ArcMap to recognize the new layer mask?
