Entries editor


An entry is one row in the table view (or Entries editor) and the entry value can consist plain text or a reference to either a single Language Object, a single Entity or an annotation.
Each entry value can have zero, one or more variables attached in the following columns of type string or script.
The entry value must be unique within the Entity and Teneo Studio will prevent the user from saving the Entity if two (or more) entry values are the same.

To use another Entity as an entry value (or in the Syntax editor), its name must be preceded by the percentage sign (%) and written in capitalized letters; Teneo Studio automatically capitalizes letters following %.

Reserved characters used as entry values will automatically be escaped with quotes.

Note that the Longest Match option (:L) is implicitly applied to Entities.

Edit entries

Any existing entry value (or variable) can be modified by simply clicking the text field to update the value; pressing Enter allows to go to the next entry (move one line down) while pressing Tab allows to move to the next column.

When writing entries referencing other Entities, Language Objects and annotations (by writing % and the name of the document or annotation), the entry value is validated as TLML Syntax and the highlighting known from the Syntax editor applied.


The option to Generate Entries is only available if LLM Settings are defined for theAccount

To automatically generate entries, follow the below steps:

  • First, open the Entity in which entries should be generated
  • With the Entity open in edit mode, click Generate in the top ribbon
  • In the pop-up, select if the entries should be generated based on existing entries or the description and also how many entries should be generated
  • Click Generate to proceed.

The new entries are automatically added to the list of entries and are highlighted with a yellow border for easy recognizability.

Sort entries

Sort the data alphabetically by entry value or by one of the variables to help manage the data visually.

To sort by a specific column, select the column header, then the arrow will appear next to the name and it is possible to sort either a-z or z-a as visualized in the below image.
