first of all, great software. I just started using prodigy and I'm really liking it. Thanks.
I know that there are plenty of other threads about duplicate examples, but somehow none solved my problem. It seems that they mostly are concerned with complicated multi-user situations, whereas mine seems much simpler and is probably just a big misunderstanding.
I have a clean prodigy installation (v1.11.6) and hence an empty prodigy.json. So no funny business there. My task: I am given a folder containing 50 images that I need to label (bounding boxes of objects of class A).
prodigy image.manual 'test' test/ --label A --width 2000 --remove-base64
works like a charm and after 50 images I get "no task left", everything is fine and labelled. However, when I stop and save my annotations halfway trough and come back the next day to continue from there (by just repeating the same call as above) I am presented images I already labelled and labelling them again will result in duplicate entries in the database (by that I mean identical hashes and everything).
Ideally I should only see examples that are not already annotated, and I thought that would be the case, given that "auto_exclude_current" should default to true (setting it explicitly to true in the prodigy.json does not change the behavior).
Is there anything I am missing? Why do I see images that I already labelled although the parameter is set? Also, in general, is there a manual of some sorts that explains the concepts (or design principles) behind prodigy?
I hope I didn't miss any important information.
Thanks in advance,
