When the annotation monitor is toggled on, these alerts display next to associative dimensions that have become dissociated from their objects.



To keep the annotation monitor on, and reassociate the dissociated dimension:

  • Select the alert next to the dimension.
  • Choose Reassociate.
  • Select the point that the dimension should reassociate with.

To toggle the annotation monitor off:

  • At the command line, enter ANNOMONITOR and set this variable to -1.
