Another possibility is that you have not fully defined the "quad" op-amp you
are using in the library.  For annotation to work as you expect, you need to
declare all four amps with their unique pin numbers as part/s 1,2,3,4.
Power pins may be declared as separate part (5) with graphics if desired but
you need to remember this portion of the physical component should be
brought into your drawing manually.

I personally find a lot of this schematic stuff rather less friendly and
rather more limiting than the Autotrax days (the control freaks have had
their say here) - I suppose that dates me.
