Select detections in specific annotation area

Hi,
Is there a way to select all the detections inside an annotation area? Or simply select more than one detection at once using an area drawed with the mouse…

Hi @Joan_Gibert_Fernande,

You can either do it by scripting, doing something like (assuming the name of your annotation is ‘myAnnotation’):

selectObjects { it.isDetection() && it.getParent() != null && it.getParent().getName() == "myAnnotation" }

Or simply by clicking on the ‘Selection’ tool in the toolbar, then draw a region to select all objects inside!

PS: Once you’re done, don’t forget to deselect the Selection tool!

EDIT: More info about the scripting option.
