Default setting to hide annotations

The canvas has 3 options as demonstrated by exhibit A:



The user settings can change 2 of the 3 defaults as demonstrated in exhibit B. The layout default and connection settings progress can both be defaulted for all new workflows:



Thus, I would propose that a user setting be added to the annotation box so that I can set the default to hide.

Manually flipping off each time we started developing a new workflow seemed a non-issue at first.  As utility and activity has increased, however, it is definitely something that seems to warrant a user-selected default.  Maybe even a shortcut-key to toggle on and off 🙂
