Annotation width is currently supported only in SolidWorks drawings.

In drawing documents, you can create annotations on a layer that has specific visual properties. By default, the annotation takes on the visual properties defined by the layer. The line width value specified with this property allows you to override the default layer width.

Use the IAnnotation::LayerOverride to determine if this annotation is using its default layer line width.
