I want to change the geometry (textpath) of existing annotation features so that the curvature gets horizontal.  I tried several things but did not succeed.
Can somebody help me with the code i already have?
        Set pFeatureCursor = pFeatureclass.Update(pFilter, False)         Set pFeature = pFeatureCursor.NextFeature         While Not pFeature Is Nothing              Dim pAnnoFeat As IAnnotationFeature             Set pAnnoFeat = pFeature                          Dim pElement As IElement             Set pElement = pAnnoFeat.Annotation                          Dim pTextElement As ITextElement             Set pTextElement = pElement                          Dim pTextSym As ISimpleTextSymbol             Set pTextSym = pTextElement.Symbol              If Not pTextSym Is Nothing Then                  Dim pTextPath As ITextPath                 Set pTextPath = pTextSym.TextPath                  If TypeOf pTextPath Is IOverposterTextPath Then                      If TypeOf pElement.Geometry Is IPolyline Then                          Dim pPointCol As IPointCollection                         Set pPointCol = New Polyline                         Set pPointCol = pElement.Geometry                          ' Just keep start- and endpoint                         pPointCol.RemovePoints 1, pPointCol.PointCount - 2                                                  '....... Replace textPath here ......                          pFeatureCursor.UpdateFeature pFeature                      End If                 End If             End If             Set pFeature = pFeatureCursor.NextFeature         Wend              End If
