Determines the order in which the software places an annotation based on available clear space and proximity to other annotations.

The software attempts to place an annotation (such as a label or a dimension) in clear space as close as possible to that object's Connect Point. Multiple annotations do not overlap. The Priority property allows you to assign a priority to each annotation, with 1 being the highest priority. The software places the annotation with the highest priority closest to that object's Connect Point. Additional annotations with lower priorities are placed further away from the corresponding object's Connect Point.

To define the priority, type a positive integer in the Priority text box.
