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!

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?

works as intended, super useful!
on 1622452213
Simply works.
on 1621881387

on 1621849899

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??

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

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.
