Problems when trying to display large number of labels for image manual annotations

Hi, When I try to display a lot of labels (like around 80 - coco dataset) in the UI, the image rendering is affected in image manual annotation mode.

But, it is working perfectly fine when few labels are present

The issue persisted in both Chrome and Firefox. Any workarounds or I am missing something here?

Hi @abhijit-2592,

I believe you can change this style by passing an option in your prodigy.json file:

   "ner_manual_label_style": "dropdown",

Yep, for that many labels, you probably want to use a dropdown – or make several passes over your data with fewer labels. Prodigy’s UI is optimised for fast annotation, so we’d typically discourage framing an annotation problem in a way that’d require the annotator to choose from 80 labels.

@justindujardin Thanks! this did the work

@ines Thanks for the tip :slight_smile:.

Hey, I know I'm late to this thread but I just had the same issue, thanks for the fix!

The documentation doesn't make it clear that the dropdown option works for image-manual - from the name I assumed it would just work for NER.

Update: Just released v1.10.5, which introduces a new label_style setting (alias for ner_manual_label_style) so it's clearer that it's supported by the ner_manual, image_manual and relations UI :slightly_smiling_face:
