Select an object and click on its name in the sidebar to select a different category. You can also use hotkey c to change the category of the active object.

Intersect bounding boxes / polygons

To make it easy to draw shapes closely together you can just draw overlapping bounding boxes and polygons. If you then select one of the overlapping shapes you can press the hotkey (default r ) to intersect the active shape with the other shapes it overlaps with.

Annotation types

Bounding box

Click the
button in the left toolbar to draw a bounding box. Click and drag to draw the box.

Polygon

After finishing a polygon, you can add a point to it with Shift + left click. This will add a point to the edge closest of the cursor. You will see a preview of where the point will be added as soon as you press Shift. You can add points to a selected polygon in view-and-select mode, or while still in draw polygon mode after finishing it. You can remove a point by Shift + left click. A polygon needs at least 3 points.

Polyline

button in the left toolbar to draw a polyline. Click on the image to draw polyline points. Double click to finish it.
After finishing a polyline, you can add a point to it with Shift + left click. This will add a point to the edge closest of the cursor. You will see a preview of where the point will be added as soon as you press Shift. You can add points to a selected polyline in view-and-select mode, or while still in draw polygon mode after finishing it. You can remove a point by Shift + left click. A polyline needs at least 2 points.
