Error when trying to register a custom annotation.

Please provide a link to a minimal sample where the issue is reproducible:

Hello @shatal1,

This is an issue with the types file for the Annotation Manager not working correctly with custom annotations. However, the code does work. All you need to do is suppress the type error with the tag: // @ts-ignore


// this is necessary to set the elementName before instantiation
      TriangleAnnotation.prototype.elementName = "triangle";
        // @ts-ignore
