Anotative symbol does not appear

When hovering my pointer over an annotative object, the annotative symbol does not appear.  This works on my other computers but not this one.  Is it a setting somewhere or is it a problem with the install?  I don't remember if it ever worked correctly or stopped working at some point in my learning process on ACA 2011 over the last 6 mos.

This setting should help you out: Go to the Options by typing the OPTIONS command then:


Options -> Selection (Tab) -> Selection preview -> Check the Box “when No Command is active

This will allow Annotation markup while moving the mouse over an annotative object.
