Topic: Annotations...scale issue

Hey guys! Been a long time since I posted here. I'll frequent back more often now.

This should be an easy question. I have created an annotation handler but my client does not want the annotation scaled with zoom. Meaning that when you zoom in the annotation always stay the same size. Ok, I gave the spec to the design team for the annotation and they did a great job(annot always stays the same size). Everything works fine. But now I need my custom annotation handler to add functionality to that annotation and in my draw callback it scales the annotation.

Any help would be is what I am currently doing...

PDAnnotGetRect(annot, &fixedRect);
AVPageViewRectToDevice(pageView, &fixedRect, &avRect);
...(get AP/annotAP stream)...
AVPageViewDrawCosObj(pageView, annotAP, &avRect);

I understand why it is happening, but am not sure of the solution.
