I've tried to create an annotation using Maplex using ArcView 10.1 Maplex. My attempt is to create an annotation file but when I try doing it, it does not export to a seperation annotation file.  Is there a step by step procedure you follow as I tried going by the Resource Center / Help, nothing. 

Can someone write down the step by step?  Much appreciated as I've been banging my head.
