what is an "associative" text?
I would know a dimension or a hatch to be associative (meaning it depends on other objects, modification of any of these objects results in automatically update of the hatch or the dimension).
"Annotative" text (or block or hatch or dimension) means that the size-properties are measured in real paper-units. So if you change the plot-scale of a viewport the the object regenerates itself to the new size. As a sample: if you define a text to be annotative with a height of 2mm it will always plot with a size of 2mm, with every scale you try to plot it.
A special advantage is that you can also define in the annotative properties of an object at which scales an object is visible and at which scales it is not. Also a sample: for 1:50 and 1:100 a wall hatch is visible, for 1:200 it is not.
