2.16. Copy and paste annotations

2.16.1. Copy annotation

Just like in many other applications, you can reuse elements you are editing with the well-known copy and paste operations. To copy an annotation do the following:

  1. Select the annotation

  2. Right click on it and select Copy Annotation, select the same option in the Annotation drop-down menu or press CTRL+C

It is possible to customize what is placed to the clipboard when copying an annotation in the Section 1.3 window (Editing panel, bullet point 9). This is especially relevant when pasting annotations in other applications than ELAN. It is e.g. possible to copy the annotation value only or to copy a citation form that includes the media file name and tier name etc.
