Generic Annotation width issue upon loading

I'm having a terrible time trying to determine what is causing my inserted Generic Annotation family into a project to get a "Move" handle way off to the right of it as if it was much much wider.  When in the Family Editor the same annotation family is just as big as it shows, when Zoomed to Fit it fills the screen. See the attached images.

 

There must be something very sinple I'm missing, but I've spent a few hours and still can't figure it out.  The Generic Annotation Family is made up entirely of Generic Annotation Lines and Text Notes, and the two Reference Lines defining the origin which can't be deleted.

 

Someone please help.

It could be that the origin of the family has been accidentally shifted. I would suggest taking a look at the steps in one of our posts on our Product Support blog, the Revit Clinic: Component Insertion Origin Doesn't Match Family Origin. The document uses a slab edge profile as an example, but the same verification steps would apply to any sort of family.

 

Let us know if this helps!

Thank you very much Katie.  This issue has been nagging me for months but I had decided not to address it until we had to.  These Tables and Schedules are the final step in the effort to convert our legacy data into proper Revit Objects.  I had spent three hours trying to figure it out or find a solution in several forums and the WikiHelp.  This did the trick marvelously.  I had never experienced success resolving an issue from a reply to a post of mine in a forum. 

 

Thanks again,
