FSX Must have a valid vegetation GUID set

#1
I am new to annotator having read some tutorials and documentation but still having some basic problems with it.

I loaded the Autogen Descriptions into the AG Configuration Editor. There I selected AG Bush General and opened the tree down to the one I desired "Bush General 8ft", more detailed than that was not possible so the selection was made in the Editor.

Then In the Annotator I loaded the BGL that contains the photoreal scenery tile. I want to use it to place lines of trees with the annotator.

In the Control Strip (Annotator) I clicked on the Vegetation (V) button. Since I already selected on the Editor the type of bush I wanted, I proceeded to click on the Set GUID button that is next to the Vegetation (V) button. At this point -in spite of having made my selection- it still shows GUID NULL.

When I click on the photoreal tile I get "Must have a valid vegetation GUID set" error. It makes sense because the control strip shows GUID NULL for the vegation. What I don't understand is WHY it doesn't take the GUID if I have already selected the type of tree in the configuration editor?

In the attached image you can see I have made the selection(s) in the Autogen Configuration Editor (A) and still no GUID with the proper configuraiton in the Annotator (B). I want to pin those trees to the photorealistic tile shown in C.

As it turns out, if you select the most specific item from the selection tree (say, Bushes General ft) such as those listed in the selection tree with a small cone icon on the left, it will NOT set the Guid.

If on the other hand, you select a group/category (Ag Bushes General) rather than the item that is expanded below the category, only THEN you can Set GUID.

Strange but then again I am not very impressed with the programmer than wrote the Annotator.
