Handwritten and signatures classes

Hi,

As mentioned in last update, this change was made regarding handwritten text on invoices:
"Merge the classes of handwritten and signatures into the class signature."

When looking on the training images, when a handwritten note overlaps a signature bounding box, these 2 bounding boxes are presented separately (as they represent different labels/classes).

However now, given the change above, both handwritten notes and signatures will belong to same class.
Does this mean that:
Overlapping bounding boxes of different handwritten text should merge into one bounding box
OR
They still should be shown as separated bounding boxes as before, but with same class?

Thanks for adding clarifications on this point.

I have also noticed in the training set that there are cases of overlapping handwritten notes (i.e. same class), but they don't merge.
So I guess the answer to my question above would be "They still should be shown as separated bounding boxes as before, but with same class."

Hi Ovidiu,

Yes, that is correct. Only the classes, not the bounding boxes have been merged.
