NER with per-entity information potential bug

Hey, I just started using LabelBox for NER with extra data attached to some entities. For one of the entities, I added a radio button to select different subcategories for that entity. Some of the subcategories then have text inputs to fill in.

During annotation, when clicking one of the text input boxes, the sidebar containg those inputs resets back to the view that contains the highest level entity types. I tried this on different browsers (Firefox and Edge) which both had this behavior.

It works as expected for text inputs that are directly on an entity (eg. LOC β†’ City name) rather than nested (Entity category β†’ Entity subcategory-> Text inputs) though.

Hi @robin-ntropy ,
