Glad to see there is character based options now, the --hightlight-chars for ner.manual.
However I encountered issues during annotation and training.
During annotation, if I select across an entire word, but without selecting the trailing space, it appears to have selected the word on the UI. However when releasing mouse the last character is not selected.
During annotation, if I wish to select something that starts from the very first character, I sometimes do a backward selection (from the end of span) because it's faster and do not need to do a pixel perfect selection. However if I move beyond the first character and out of the drop shadowed part of the annotation UI then release the mouse, it does not register as a mouse release.
During annotation if I first select 1 character, and without releasing mouse I reverse that selection, now releasing mouse can cause a zero character selection. It cause a permanent bug during this session as there is no way to cancel or deselect that annotation without restart.
There is no hightlight-chars for ner.teach or ner.correct. Can this be added to the standard recipes so I can train character based model with active learning?
