Annotation tool does not work when pressing D and LEFT MOUSE BUTTON.

Annotation tool will work when searching with CMD+F; but also within the search, if you click ENTER the annotation tool will pop up for a split second and disappear.

Attaching a short video.

What key map are you using and what editor type are you trying to annotate on?

The video is not loading

The D key for annotate does work if you use any of the other tools, other than the 3D Cursor tool. It's probably a keymap issue.

Sorry about the video issue. looks it is working on my safari browser but not on other browsers :/

That's true @William Reynish (billreynish) ! it doesn't work only with the 3d Cursor tool!
Still there is an issue with Choosing the Annotation node in the search menu,
Works with mouse click but not with ENTER. weird.

here is the video:

Ok, I've located the issue. For the 3D Cursor tool keymap, Set 3D Cursor (view3d.cursor3d) is set to Press rather than Click. If changed to Click, the D key now works again.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) will you change this to fix this issue?

Hmm, to add further flavour, changing the 3D Cursor to Click makes it so it doesn't move under your mouse cursor. This may be a bit more difficult to fix than I thought.

I am afraid that this will spawn even more issues in the future. The main issue here is that the 3D cursor should not really a be tool, a mode you switch to, but rather an auxiliary feature that is use in parallel with the actual tools, and input mapping for that tool should be a modifier key + one of the mouse buttons.
