Annotation

Extension to work with the Document Editor

You can upload documents to Text Projects by linking them from external storages. For that, you'll need to enable CORS in your storage. To use the Text Editor, you need to install and enable the CORS Unblock extension.

To install and enable the CORS Unblock extension:

  1. Install the CORS Unblock extension.
  2. Pin the extension.
  3. When you go to the Text Editor, right-click on the extension.
  4. Hover over This Can Read and Change Site Data.
  5. Select the Text Editor’s link.

Create instance

To create an instance:

  1. Select Entity in the left panel or press E on the keyboard.
  2. Highlight the text you want to annotate.

Token annotations

When Basic Tokenization or Smart Tokenization is enabled, you can highlight part of a word and the entire word will be annotated. For example, if you select Fin from the word Finland, the entire word Finland will be annotated. If you select lt ha from felt happy, felt happy will be annotated.

With Basic Tokenization, if you highlight Fran in San Francisco, only the word Francisco will be annotated.

With Smart Tokenization, if you highlight Fran in San Francisco, the word San Francisco will be annotated. That's because the model used in Smart Tokenization recognizes geolocations, city names, book titles, etc.

If a project has existing annotations before the tokenization feature was enabled, the existing annotations won’t be affected. New projects have Basic Tokenization enabled by default. You can disable tokenization from the project setup.

Stretch instance

You can stretch instances by dragging the edges. This will help you edit existing annotations (that were imported, for instance) without having to delete and recreate them.
