AutoCAD 2013 Annotation Monitor

The new “Annotation Monitor” is shown as “AM” in the drafting setings toggles in the status bar. I suggest that users turn these settings to text instead of the icons. The reason for this is because what usually what happens is that if the icons are displayed, the user will hover the cursor over the icon until the text appears to show what the icon is. Well, if you simply change this to text in the first place, you can save yourself that step…

To do this:

  • Right click over any of the drafting settings buttons
  • Uncheck “Use Icons”

The Annotation Monitor simply alerts you when you have drawing views that have associative annotations that have been altered or have lost their link to the object(s) in model space.
