Jörn Kottmann updated UIMA-1183:

      Assignee: Jörn Kottmann
    Issue Type: Bug  (was: Improvement)

Hi Philip, 

the annotation which is selected in the outline view should be selected in the text editor.
Also annotation which 
are selected which are part of a feature are selected. 

I think this is somehow broken on your machine, I would like to find out why and fix it. 
For this I need more information from you.

Please go to the about dialog and click on configuration details and attach
these to the issue. 

It would also be nice if you can attach a a screenshot which shows that the selection in the
editor does not work
when something in the outline is selected, maybe this gives a clue.

> It is often hard to tell which annotation is selected.  For example, when you click on
an annotation in the outline, nothing changes in the text pane.  This can be very disorienting
if you have many annotations of the same type close together.  Some visual cue would be very
helpful.  The default behavior in knowtator is to draw black lines above and below the span
of the selected annotation.  Another provided option is to fade out all of the other annotations
leaving only the selected annotation a bright color.  (I like the former better).  
> Additionally, it would be nice if the annotations related via type features to the selected
annotation could be visualized in the text pane.  Knowtator does this by drawing dashed lines
above and below the annotations that are related to the selected annotation.
