About Moving Annotations in Annotation Elements
You can move annotations in Annotation Elements and standalone annotations by clicking Move on the shortcut menu that appears when you select the Annotation Element in the Model Tree or the graphics window and right-click. Moving the pointer to a new location and clicking places the annotation at the new location. Middle-clicking cancels the move operation. Similarly, you can move Annotation Elements that are propagated into data sharing features and Annotation Elements propagated within a model. The position of the propagated annotation is independent of the position of the original Annotation Element.
You can move standalone annotations using Properties on the shortcut menu or the menu manager. Similarly, you can also move annotations in Annotation Elements.
You cannot move either annotations in Annotation Elements or standalone annotations if they have been placed directly on an entity.
