I have several annotations in my map that disturb.

Is it possible to hide them somehow and show them later when I need them?

enter image description here


Toggle the Text Annotation function in the toolbar and press Ctrl + T to switch it on/off:

Text annotation


The above keyboard shortcut only affects text annotations.

There is the experimental Annotations manager plugin which allows you to enable/disable/remove annotations in your project. Note that it only affects the following annotation types:

  • Text
  • Form
  • SVG

I.e. it does not currently support HTML annotations. You can download this from the menubar:

Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins...

Annotations manager plugin

    If I press Ctrl + T all my layers activate, but annotations don't disappear.. – Egidi Sep 22 '16 at 17:16
  • @Egidi - Apologies, you're absolutely right (I assumed the keyboard shortcut affected all annotations). I've edited my post ;) – Joseph Sep 23 '16 at 9:10
  • Also note that the current version of the plugin is a little unstable and may crash your QGIS... – Joseph Sep 23 '16 at 9:15
