2.16.2. Paste annotation

In a similar way you can paste these annotations from the clipboard into ELAN:

  1. Go to the tier where you want to paste the annotation

  2. Select Annotation > Paste Annotation or press CTRL+V


Annotations can only be pasted onto tiers of the same tier type! If you want to copy the annotation to a tier of a different type, use Duplicate Annotation (see Section 2.16.5).

Please note that pasting an annotation can result in different behavior according to the context:

However, pasting an annotation will never change the time alignment of that annotation unit. This means that the annotation will be placed on exactly the same time as it was found when the copy operation was performed. If you want to change its timing, move it afterwards or use the Paste annotation here option (see Section 2.16.3).
