Hello!

I'm trying to rotate an annotation in ESRI ArcGIS, but I'm getting an error message (see the atach file).
The error says "the spatial index grid size is invalid".

I've created the feature class of annotation type in ArcCatalog and then I've exported the labels from a polygon.

The annotation is displayed correctly, but I can't edit it.

I'm using ArcGIS 9.3.1. on Win 7.

Hi,

Have a look at this link I think your spatial index may be to small. The heading "spatial indexes in personal geodatabases" and "How to modify a spatial grid index" look helpful!

Or you could try to create your annotations via another route. Label the feature class which you want to have labelled, then right click and create annotations, and select to create annotations in the database not the map document. This should make the spatial index an appropriate size for the annotation layer (I think from memory that's what i did last time i had the issue). I think the problem you are having is caused by creating an annotation class with nothing in it, and then exporting to it.

Good luck

Andrew

I've had such error messages before when modifying annotation classes. My workaround was to add a dummy feature (they were all lines in my case) that was considerably larger than the extent of my original feature class, then create the annotations (in a database) and finally delete the dummy feature plus its annotation. With this little detour I have always managed to avoid the error messages.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,

Kathi
