Short description of error
Annotation "RulerData3D" creation inconsistency. Deleting of measurements inconsistent (seems like index off by 1 issue).

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on Default

Open Tool Shelf panel
Open the Properties Panel and expand only "Annotations" (to be able to see effects) [N] [Ctrl/Click Annotations]
Verify Annotations list is empty

Annotation RulerData3D Creation Inconsistency
Align to Front Ortho View [Numpad 1]
Switch to Measure Tool
Click Drag a measurement line x3 (create 3 separate lines)
Orbit around screen [MMB]
Switch to Select Tool (Measures disappear, as expected)
Orbit around screen [MMB]
NOTE: Annotation RulerData3D not yet created
Align to Side View [Numpad 3]
NOTE: Annotation RulerData3D now created!

Continuing from state above
Inconsistent Measure Delete
Align to Front Ortho View [Numpad 1]
Make "RulerData3D" annotation visible [eye] (it defaults invisible). Should see lines representing the 3 rulers
Switch to Measure Tool (3 measure lines and values visible)

Select 1 measure line (cursor to line end, when it changes from + to 4 arrows/dots, click. Line highlights)
Delete line [X or Delete button]
Note: Annotation Line still visible for deleted line
Select another measure line
Note: Annotation line for previous line deletes now
Delete line.
Note: Annotation Line still visible for deleted line

State: 1 measure line value on screen. 1 extra annotation line on screen

Switch to Select tool
Switch to Measure tool
Note: Last deleted measure line (matching annotation line) reappears (2 lines on screen now)
Select and delete both measure lines.
Note: Annotation Line still visible for last deleted line
Switch to Select tool
Switch to Measure tool
Note: last deleted measure line reappears

Delete measure line
Select and delete annotation "RulerData3D"
Switch to Select tool
Switch to Measure tool
Note: Measure line does not reappear. All measures now deleted

It seems clear from behaviors that there is some temporary buffer with measures hanging around. Delete Index into this buffer seems to be off by 1 in some section of code, but is corrected on the selecting of the next line. Annotation is created from this buffer at odd points in time.

Event Timeline

Just touching this as it it still exists. Seems possibly status is wrong and should have be changed to "Confirmed" when it was assigned by Bill

Was just about to submit a bug report before I found this, I can confirm the same bug in the latest 2.8:

Richard Antalik (ISS) changed the task status from Confirmed to Needs Information from User.Wed, Jan 29, 11:35 PM

Annotation RulerData3D Creation Inconsistency

RulerData3D is created when expected. Annotation panel is just not updated

Can not reproduce other errors.

Can you please check if this is still an issue in latest build?

I have rechecked vs latest beta build of 2.82 and find the issue as reported is resolved.
