Any way to copy bounding boxes/polygon annotations?


Is there any way to copy bounding boxes/polygon annotations when labeling? I am labeling grids of objects, where each object is of roughly the same size and shape, and it would be more efficient if there was some copypaste function.


Yes, Roboflow provides a feature called “Repeat Previous” which allows you to reapply label(s) on an image in the same location(s) as the last annotated image. This can be particularly useful when you are labeling grids of objects where each object is of roughly the same size and shape.

Please note that this feature is available while you are in Bounding Box (B) or Polygon (P) mode.

For more details, you can refer to the Roboflow’s Labeling Interface Guide.

That’s helpful, but is there any way to copy boxes WITHIN an image itself? (and not between images).

Thanks again

Hi @Hummus_Akemi

Unfortunately, we don’t have a way to duplicate bounding boxes at the moment.
