The general annotation process is as follows:
The annotation interface can be opened on any page by clicking the icon in the top-right corner.
From top to bottom:
On the left of the image is the element tree. This tree allows you to hide, display, and select children elements on your page. The eye icon next to each element is grey when they are hidden, green when they are displayed on the image.
When you hover over an element, two icons appear:
When you select an element, either directly on the image or from the element tree, detailed information (such as classes, transcriptions, or creation information) about this element is displayed on the right side of the image.
Once you have drawn a shape on the image, a pop-up window opens for element creation.
When creating an element, you have to select its type, and you can give it a name and assign it a class. Once an element is created, it shows up on the image and in the element tree.
You can add transcriptions to existing elements by clicking the [A+] button next to an element in the element tree. This opens up a pop-up window into which you can type your text.
You can also annotate the pages/images with a class. For example, you may want to annotate the handwritten pages in a project and this will be the example on which we will illustrate the class annotation process.
In order to annotate a project with classes, the classes need to be defined beforehand by an administrator. You can start by increasing the number of elements that are displayed on a page, to do so go to the main page of the folder or the project and click on the Display button that is on the top right part of the page. You can then change the pagination size to 500 as shown in the picture below:
You can start adding elements that belong to a given class to the selection. In our example, we are going to add all handwritten images to the selection. We do so by clicking on the check mark button at the bottom right of every handwritten page's widget as shown in the picture below:
After you have selected all the elements that belong to a given class on a page, click on the document icon on the top-right corner of the screen to open the selection.
By clicking this button, you will be redirected to the page that contains all the elements that you selected. To add a classification for all the selected elements, click on the Actions button that is on the top right of the page, then select the Add a classification button in the drop down list that gets displayed.
This will open a modal window where you can select the right class for these images. Clicking the button Add will add the classification to all the elements that you have selected.
You can view all the elements that belong to a certain class on the main page of the project or folder, you can do so by clicking on the Best class filter button that is on top right of the page. A drop down list will appear where you can write the name of the class:
