Description

QGIS documentation says:

If you press `Ctrl+T` while an `Annotation` tool is active (move annotation, text annotation, form annotation), the visibility states of the items are inverted.

I don't pretty understand what it means but this is another issue...
I neither understand how this tool works in the map canvas: what decides which annotations are hidden or not?
I added many annotations to the dialog and I'm unable to understand why visibility of half of them is toggled on/off when i press Ctrl+T and I cannot see how I can edit the list of impacted annotations (set some of them to stay always visible, or make anothers "togglable").
