I changed the AnnotationsWithMvvm TextAnnotation to a custom annotation.
The TextAnnotation is selectable and movable (when IsEditable=true). I did the same for the CustomAnnotation, but this one is no more selectable, neither movable. Why?

Hi Tobias,

Thanks for writing to us. I took a quick look at the sample project, and suppose that RTB handles mouse events by itself. Try decorating the RTB by a border, you will be able to select/move annotation by it.

Could I ask, which behavior do you leak in TextAnnotation? Maybe we will be able to suggest a way of implementation for you.

Best regards,

    Hi YuriyThanks it solved the problem.I need formatted text in the textbox to autolabel peaks in a mass spectra (chemical notation). That is why I use RTF. If you could implement a richtextboxannotation it would be perfect.Thanks again, Tobias
