is there any way to quickly “jump” into the annotation editing?
(without “weird” targeting to the small “pen” icon in the top left corner, sometimes very difficul with the different zoom level etc…).
I’ve found similar question / request here but… so far I haven’t find any other way)
A different, quicker way does not exist, unfortunately. I added your request to the existing Ticket (AP-15349).
Chances are high that annotating will change dramatically with the advent of the Modern UI (as of writing, annotating is not implemented at all), so you might want to keep an eye out on that!
On a more technical side, the annotations of a workflow are saved in the local filesystem under the workflow folder in the workflow.knime-file. This XML-File, you can edit as well, to modify the workflow - including annotations. But be careful, its easy to break stuff there as well (speaking of experience )
All +1s are added. The Modern UI will be the new “face” of KNIME Analytics Platform and a working version for previewing already exists. You can find details on how to use it here: KNIME Modern UI Preview Guide
