1.6.4. Viewing a list of annotations within one tier (Grid Viewer)

ELAN allows you to list all annotations from a single tier, and then select one annotation and jump to it.

To activate the Grid Viewer, click on the Grid tab:

In this context menu, you can choose between the following options:

You can use the Grid Viewer window to navigate to an annotation in the ELAN window. You have the following two options:

  1. Move the crosshair to the begin of an annotation.

    Do the following:

    1. In the Grid Viewer window, click with the mouse button on an annotation.

      A red triangle appears next to the annotation in the Grid Viewer window, and the crosshair moves to the beginning of that annotation in the ELAN window.

  2. Select a time interval.

    Do the following:

    1. In the Grid Viewer window, click with the mouse button on the first annotation that you want to select.

    2. Keep the mouse button down and drag the mouse to another annotation.

      In the Grid Viewer window, all selected annotations are highlighted in light blue color. In all other windows, the corresponding time interval is selected and highlighted in light blue color (starting with the beginning of the first annotation and ending with the endpoint of the last).

[Note]Note

Selecting a time interval also changes the current time. This happens implicitly by moving the crosshair to the begin of the annotation.
