"It was good when I used it yesterday, but I can't use it today. Is everyone like this? Or am I the only one who has this kind of situation?"
I am having this problem. I deleted the addon and installed again but it didnt work.
on 1650045212
It works but only when Advanced Browser is turned off.
on 1649407779
Works great

It was good when I used it yesterday, but I can't use it today. Is everyone like this? Or am I the only one who has this kind of situation?

If it doesn't work, you have to sort by "created"
then, you can use this wonderful adds on.

If you can't see "created" column, right click on top bar and add "created".
on 1647632106
I love it, thank you. Please add the ability to move a note straight to the top. When I want cards to be next to each other in the list, it's much easier to just move them all to the top.
on 1647385560
Anki v2.1.49 - Incompatible with the Advanced Browser addon (https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/874215009). The duplicate, move up, and move down options are all greyed out. Only works if I disable Advanced Browser first.
on 1646760426
Works fine, when sorting by "created" (or equivalent in your language). If you don't see this option, you first have to manually add it by right clicking on the sort bar. Very useful feature.
on 1646621380
Works just like it says! Remember to make it work you have to sort cards by when they were created! Took me a minute to figure this out...
on 1646478943
This add-on worked extremely well. Working in Version ⁨2.1.49 on my Mac. I LOVE this add on!
on 1644774978
I've been wanting this function for ages but didn't know how to do it. This is immensely helpful!!
on 1640771351
Works for me, thanks!
on 1640240182
Works perfectly, thank you !
on 1639697602
It's working on MacBook.

I needed to duplicate cards in order to manually make overlapping clozes, and Glutanimate's Duplicate Selected Notes addon https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/2126361512 hasn't been updated in a long time. With this addon I only had to downgrade to 2.1.44, awesome!

Edit: The addon has since been updated to support 2.1.45-2.1.49, but I have no need to duplicate more notes at the moment so I have no reason to test it. I assume it works perfectly! I'll update this review if I end up using the addon more.
on 1638268703
The addon works fine with the new update

PS: I previously had the issue some other people describe in which duplicate and reorder options appear greyed out. This happens because the addon conflicts with Advanced Browser addon: I disabled it and it works fine now
on 1638153908
Good addon but for me doesn't work for at least a couple updates. I don't have any conflicting demands with alt+d so no idea why it wont work aside from maybe my other addons. Also when I try to do it manually by rightclicking->notes I cant click duplicate, move up or move down. All three are unclickable and the font even looks different then the other buttons. Also I dont get any error messages or anything.
K so I disabled every other addon and it still doesn't work lol and the buttons still unclickable.

Update: Thanks. Looks like having the cards ranked by tags causes the problem but when ranked by created date it works again. Lol though I unknowingly closed a door then complained I couldn't get past. Thanks for the Addon btw it has been pretty useful. Surprised it isn't an Anki feature already.
Comment from author before post was edited
Hi, here are couple suggestions :
- make sure you sort the card list (or note list) by *Created* column
- check if you have the latest version : I uploaded a new version on november 23 (2021-11-23)
- if that still doesn't fix your problem please come open an issue there : https://gitlab.com/redgis/anki-addon-duplicate-and-reorder/-/issues
on 1637572445
Thumbs up for great and useful idea, but the addon not working on latest Anki and latest version of the addon (platform Windows 10).
Menu items appear but they are greyed out (inactive).
Please fix it

PS this prerequisite is provided: "Available in Anki browser, when viewing a deck sorted by *Created* column"
Comment from author
Hi, thanks for the thumb up.

In my tests the addon does work well in the latest versions 2.1.45 to 2.1.49. I also tested the latest beta 2.1.50-qt5 and qt6 on Windows : no issue found.

Please can you report the issue you encounter, with the error message if any, on the issue page : https://gitlab.com/redgis/anki-addon-duplicate-and-reorder/-/issues

I will be more then happy to assist, investigate the issue and help you get it to work.
The exact version you are using and a screenshot will help me understand your issue.

This, my friends, is one of the bests add-ons in the history of anki!!! Thank you so much!!!!
on 1625501408
Worked for me on 2.1.45

Simple and elegant. Amazing!
on 1623812236
Only works when all selected cards are in one deck. I am looking for something that can duplicate cards in different decks at the same time (e.g. all cards with a certain tag).
on 1623164352
Absolutely fantastic addon! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Very useful for everybody who uses Anki to study hierarchical knowledge like law or medicine and who would like to order their cards by topic in the browser.

One thing that I would like to know is this: I was worried that by changing the creation date Anki would be unable to see that a certain note was already present in its database (because the creation date is the same as the note id if I remember correctly). So I thought there could be problems if you import a deck, change the creation date of some notes and then reimport the deck again (or an updated version of it later on). I just tried this however and there were no problems at all. Anki recognized all duplicates perfectly. So apparently my concerns were unfounded. Do you perhaps now how Anki checks for duplicates and if this can be affected by this addon?
on 1622540145
works as intended, super useful!
on 1622452213
Simply works.
on 1621881387
very useful
on 1621849899
it works :)
on 1620962246
Exactly what I needed. I'm surprised I had to get an add on for this action.

Doesn't work; error comes up. Secondly, why not put the duplicate cards automatically into a new deck?

Comment from author
Sorry, I have no idea what is causing this issue in your case. Maybe try to install a more recent version of Anki.

Putting the new card in a new deck isn't the purpose of that addon, at least in my use.
The goal is to just create an exact copy of an existing card and put it right next to the original.
on 1614505486
It works perfectly!
on 1613800271
So helpful, it should be built into the app
on 1613468444
Nice, works as expected, thanks!
on 1612858072
Thanks for listing these resources!

I really thank you! Since "Copy notes" doesn't work anymore with the new Anki versions, I have been looking for a replacement. You add-on has even more functions.
on 1612606875
Works great with Anki 2.1.33 Win
on 1612308043
Perfect! I use it to create multiple choice cards where the same list of possible answers is the same for several cards.
on 1612075637
Works on Version 2.1.35 for Mac as described. Helpful addon, easy to use.
on 1610529907
Work perfect at 2.1.38! Use to get new card due duplication and changing chosen one!
Thanks a lot!
on 1609698929
Brilliant. I use this so I can review bigger picture concepts by ordering newly added notes so they have a logical flow.
on 1609675428
Working great!
on 1608312002
Thanks 🙂
I use it mainly for manipulating shared decks (splitting [word+sentence] notes to two notes, for example).
on 1606713744
could the duplicator also copy the review history, ease, interval, and due date??
Comment from author
Sorry for late reply, I only just found how to reply to comments ^^'

It should actually retain all those properties from the original card now, thanks to a contribution
on 1606592442
The only card-copy add-on that works on my comp after trying 1566928056 and 2126361512

Phenomenal work and it works perfectly with v2.1.35

Good job
on 1604353585
This is a function I was looking for: Reordering cards to keep them in my own order while viewing them in the browser.
Thanks for that!
on 1604350539
Thank you for remaking/updated this. A simple, but useful addon that I was waiting for be updated.
