Bug Fixes

  • On the Labeling Page, the following issues related to completions were identified and fixed:
    • In the Visual NER Project, when an annotator clicks on the Next button to load the next available task, the PDF was not correctly loaded and the text selection doesn’t work properly.
    • Shortcut keys were not working when creating new completions.
    • It happened that completions were no longer visible after creating relations.
  • Previously, after each project configuration edit, when validating the correctness of the configuration the cursor position was reset to the end of the config file. The user had to manually move the cursor back to its previous position to continue editing. Now, the cursor position is saved so that the editing can continue with ease.
  • Removing a user from the “UserAdmins” group was not possible. This has been fixed. Any user can be added or removed from the “UserAdmins”.
  • In previous versions, choosing an already existing name for the current project did not show any error messages. Now, an error message appears on the right side of the screen asking users to choose another name for the project.
  • In the previous version, when a user was deleted and a new user with the same name was created through Keycloak, on the next login the UI did not load. Now, this issue was fixed.
  • Validations were added to Swagger API for completions data such that random values could not be added to completion data via API.
  • Previously, when a rule was edited, previously deployed preannotation pipelines using the edited rules were not updated to use the latest version of the rule. Now the user is notified about the edited rule via an alert message “Redeploy preannotation server to apply these changes” on the rule edit form so that the users can redeploy the preannotation model.
