Override Annotation Dot shape

Hi there.
In Annotation Dot command, can I override shape and color?
For example, put an Annotation Dot with some text and a red star shape?
If it isn’t possible to override, how can I write a new command to obtain the same result?

Maybe I have to build from scratch an overlapping object like here?

Hi @Noos,

The shape of a standard annotation text dot, which is rounded rectangle, cannot be changed. And, it’s color is controlled just like any other Rhino object.

It is possible for you to dynamically draw your own “shape dot” using a display conduit. You could also inherit your own object type from CustomPointObject if you wanted to go that route. I don’t believe we have a RhinoCommon sample that demonstrates this. But we do have a C++ sample.
