How can I disable the X-Ray effect of grease pencil (aka Annotations), so that what I write on a face of a mesh cannot be seen when that face is hidden? Is it possible? photo showing annotation on a face disturbing other faces annotations

I had the exact same issue until I realized I shouldn't use the Annotation tool but a real grease pencil layer.

Add > grease pencil > Blank

You then switch from Object Mode to Draw Mode and switch the Stroke placement from Origin to Surface

  • $\begingroup$ Very nice I would not have found it myself... All hidden features, and obsolete things in Blender. I think this way of greasing is useful, while the other way is quite cumbersome, unless you want to have pervasive beacons in your model.. :) $\endgroup$ – Salahzar Stenvaag Jan 13 at 16:52

This can also be handled programmatically. Details in this question here: How to disable x-ray for annotations (grease pencil) in 2.8?
