Short description of error
Grease Pencils / Annotations are in the file but are invisible as though you have them hidden/disabled from viewport/overlays.
The points can be seen in Edit/Sculpt/Weight Paint, but the actual strokes are only visible on Annotations, while you're drawing them.

I got this bug where sometimes the annotation will flip out and be visible and stick to the viewport but otherwise, nothing.

Does this happen after loading factory settings? If not, could you upload a blend file at the point where drawing an annotation fails?

Setting as high because all grease pencil and annotation objects are broken.
