Manage annotations

In the Annotation tool window is possible to view, modify or delete the annotations that have been defined for the current file.

First, open the test file in the editor or select it if it is already open, then select the Annotation tool window. The procedures below must be performed in that window.

View annotations

  1. Select the Categories or Extractions tab based on the type of annotations you want to view.
  2. The panel corresponding to the tab shows the list of annotations. Here you can see which annotations have been defined.

For extraction annotations, to highlight the range of characters corresponding to the Begin and End columns values, just select the annotation.

Find and filter annotations

If you have a lot of annotations, you can quickly find the ones you are interested in using the search function or—in case of extraction annotations—filter them to show only those of a certain type.

To find annotations:

  1. In Search enter the search criteria1. You can use full words or portions. For example, in the Extractions tab, text use will match values like house, user, etc.
  2. Select Find Next to find the first annotation matching your criteria.
  3. Select Find Next again to find other matches.

To filter extraction annotations by type:

  1. In Filter by type select the template.

Modify annotations

  1. Double-click the annotation you want to change.
  2. Edit the annotation details.

Underline all the annotations in the editing area

  • Select Keep Highlighted

Delete annotations

  1. Select the annotations to delete. You can press Shift and Ctrl while you select to set a multiple selection.
  2. Select Delete Selected Annotations on the toolbar.

  1. In the Categories tab the search criteria match the name of categories—the annotation value—, in the Extractions tab they match both the template-field couple and the value.
