Problem with "Annotate Component with All Properties"

We have recently transitioned from DC to DxDesigner/DxDatabook. The problem I'm dealing with right now is related to a converted design (DC to Dx). I know part of my problem stems from the fact that our Dx library is a "new" incarnation, not a 1 to 1 translation of the old DC library. We decided to take the opportunity to start from scratch with our Dx library, so we've changed the way a lot of things are done. Needless to say, that's created a number of issues when working with a translated design. I don't know if my current problem is one of those kinds of problems or not; I'm going through this design, using the "verify" to update the schematic with all the new DxDatabook properties. One of our new properties is called "SCHEMATIC_VALUE", When I update a symbol (or group of them) using the verify/annotate component with all properties function, the new "SCHEMATIC_VALUE" property is NOT coming in as it's defined in the library symbol, the font is different, and the location is different. In the library, the "SCHEMATIC_VALUE"  is located close to the symbol, as you would expect, but when it gets annotated in Dx, it's nearly 2 inches away from the symbol! Also, the text font as defined in the library symbol is SAN SERIF, but when it gets annotated, it comes in as "FIXED" . Can any shed some light on this, it's driving me crazy! I've got a 33 page converted schematic to clean up, and touching each and every part to change fonts and positions is not the best use of my time.
