Annotations window not showing with Ctrl+click on time series

Hi, I hope this is not too basic. I searched the forum for similar questions but I couldn’t find an answer.
I’m using Grafana v8.0.1 with InfluxDB 2.0.7 and a Flux based connection to the database.
So far everything is going alright but when I try to create an annotation by holding the Ctrl button and clicking or dragging an area of the time series, nothing happens.
I checked the “Graph (old)” visualization and I can create annotations there.
Is there a way to enable annotations in the time series visualization?
Thank you!

This is a missing feature in the “new” time series chart type. See Ability to add annotations on the new time series panel · Issue #35424 · grafana/grafana · GitHub
