multi select as an annotation

  • 1.  multi select as an annotation

    sorry for the basic user question but I'm stumped.  

    Is it possible to use the multi-select option and then add that 'selection' as one annotation/query layer?  Obviously you can add individual objects as an annotation and you can have multiple objects as part of a spatial or attribute query, etc.

    I have a client who wants to select various polygons individually and then add them back as a query or annotation layer.  If I draw a polygon and do a within query it selects more than the ones I want, so I want to pick them out individually.  multi-select lets me export my 'selection' as one CSV file but add annotation is only available for each individual object selected.  There's no specific attribute to query on either.

    Have I missed something here?  Seems odd that Spectrum can't do it.
