I am doing a lot of name reviews right now. I have noticed many times that the computer is off on the highligh. I was wondering if there was any way to edit the highlights.
The highlights can sometimes be changed, but not directly in the Get Involved or Name Review pages. Be aware that changing the highlighted box often does not show in the Review page after it is done. If you want to change it for future users, do the following:
On the bottom right of my laptop screen, there is a Record Details link. Clicking on that, should take you to the historical record index that this review is attached to.
The historical record page has an Edit button in the center of the black header. If the button is blue, edits can be made, and clicking on it will provide fields that are able to be changed.
If clicking Edit takes you to a full screen image of the document, that looks like this, you can click on pencil next to the info that needs adjusting.
Click Edit Highlight and choose the box that needs to be fixed. It will show a dotted line with a blue circle and your cursor should turn into arrows to move or resize the box. After you correct the highlight, click Save in the bottom right corner. Click Save Changes, again in the bottom right. The image should show the new highlighted area when the page updates, sometimes immediately and sometimes not so quick.
A few things to keep in mind: 1. editing the indexed image in this way is a new feature and it still has some bugs. Sometimes changes stay and sometimes they don't. 2. Changing the highlights here will most likely not be applied when you go back to the Review page.
