This release is packed with features that’ll advance your SuperAnnotate experience. Keep on reading to find out what we’ve been working on!

Project page redesign

We moved the following tabs under Setup:

  • Classes
  • Workflow
  • Contributors
  • Settings

In the Classes tab, you can click Collapse or Expand to collapse or expand the classes. When collapsed, you can see the class names, the class colors, and the class type only. When expanded, you can additionally see the attribute group(s), attribute(s), and the attribute type(s) if available.

The Contributors tab also experienced minor changes. To invite a contributor:

  1. Click Share.
  2. Select a contributor from the drop-down list under Team contributors.
  3. Select a role from the drop-down list under Role. You can choose between Annotator, QA, and Project Admin.
  4. Click Share.

To change a contributor’s role:

  1. Select the contributor’s role.
  2. Choose a new role from the drop-down list.
  3. In the pop-up, click Change.


When you change the contributor’s role, the assigned items will be unassigned.

Vector Editor’s left panel redesign

We’ve made some changes to Vector Editor’s left panel:

  • All the annotation tools are in a nested menu. Right-click on the bounding box in the left panel to find all the tools.
  • Right-click on the text icon in the left panel to find the Eyedropper, Bucket, and Ruler.
  • We removed the zoom in and zoom out buttons. To zoom in, scroll up. To zoom out, scroll down.


Note that if your project doesn’t have at least one class with the object type, the following tools won’t be available in the left panel: annotation tools, Eyedropper, Bucket, Class, and Workflow.

Show/Hide multiple objects in the Vector Editor

Now you can show and hide multiple objects at the same time in the Vector Editor. To do that:

  1. Select one or multiple objects on the canvas or the group’s dashed line.
  2. Right-click on any object.
  3. Select the eye icon to show or hide the objects.

To unhide objects, select the eye icon of every object you want to unhide in the right panel.

Rename subsets

You can now rename subsets in Explore.

To rename a subset:

  1. Find the subset you want to rename under Subsets in the left panel.
  2. Click on the three dots > Rename.
  3. In the popup, type the new subset name.
  4. Click Rename.

Recent queries

When you click on the query bar in the Explore tab, you can see your last 3 unique queries. Click on a recent query to apply it in the query bar.

Default attributes

You can set a default attribute for each attribute group for Objects and Tags in Vector Projects, Video Projects, and Text Projects. This works with the following attribute group types only: Single selection and Multiple selection.

To set a default attribute, choose an attribute from the drop-down list under Default attribute, then click Save.

When a class has a default attribute or multiple default attributes, the default attribute(s) will be selected when the class is assigned to an object. Let’s suppose we have a class, Vehicle, that has two default attributes, Car (for the default attribute Type) and Black (for the attribute group Color). When the class Vehicle is assigned to an object, that object will also have the attributes Car and Black assigned automatically. You can choose to remove or change the attributes.
