How can I prevent the pattern annotation from appearing (and being plotted) outside of a pattern?

Marker Pattern Annotation Location Control
Sometimes when placing pattern annotations on patterns (especially circular patterns with a hole in the middle), the pattern annotation plots in a location that may cause the annotation to be outside the pattern. This may be caused by the grain line crossing the hole area. There is a simple method for solving this problem.
Simply move the grain line to a location in the pattern so that it sits completely inside the pattern. StyleCAD tries to plot at the geometric center of the pattern first and if the annotation is outside the pattern outline, it tries the grain line location next. Making sure the grain line sits completely inside will ensure that the annotation is plotted inside the pattern outline.
