Annotate word elements in a text

Hint: You can directly annotate word elements of your texts and link them to existing entities. Learn here how to do this.

Record information about your text

You can add information on your text, such as its specific naming, a definition, a comment or simply link it to a specific source object.

Procedure for recording information

  • Switch to 'Fields' on the right and activate 'edit-mode'.
  • Add a short name, naming, definition or comment exactly like any other piece of information filling in the required information.

Procedure for linking a text with a source object

In case you want to indicate that your text is a digital reproduction of one of your source objects, you can follow this procedure:
  • Select 'fields' and activate 'edit-mode'.
  • Then select 'is reproduction of' and select the source content of the source you want to link this text with.
    --> To do this, search in the existing Source Contents on the right, do not create a new Source Content!
(1) Select "is reproduction of" and then select "source content".
(2) Search for the appropriate source content to which you want to link your text.
Note: In order to link a newly created text with a source object, it is important that the source object already exists in the project library (source module on the very left).
