On my side that works. When it is enabled I get screen for Org capture
and I can do it.

One solution you can use is that you open separate Emacs instance or
Emacs as server that loads org-capture and serves for capturing
things. It may run in background without interrupting your work. It
can then spawn emacsclient to annotate or write the captured note.
