Is there any way to make it like in the previous IO addition for 2.1, where I can simply copy an image and it will automatically put my copied image to be edited in the IO mode? It's very annoying to have to save and import every image from my desktop. This would hopefully be a great but easy fix.
Comment from author
Hi. The add-on should support reading copied images (or at least it does on my machine and that of most users). It sounds like you're experiencing a bug or system-specific issue that might prevent that from working. In order to fix that I'd have to know about your particular set-up, including your operating system, Anki version, and such. Unfortunately the review section on here is not suited for troubleshooting since there is no way to properly chat back and forth. So my request for you would be to send me an email at ankiglutanimate@gmail.com so that I can take a closer look (you can also get in touch with me through one of the other means described under "Help and Support" listed on the add-on page above). Thanks.

Nothing better to take your anki learning to the next level

Just wonderful
on 1571768397
Awesome
on 1571625839
When I add two rectangles to the image and then press the button "Hide all, guess one", the plugin adds two cards to Anki.
Is it the default behavior ? Shouldn't it only add one card ? I try to reinstall the plugin, the result is the same.
on 1571497375
This is the most useful plugin for the entire program. However, every time I open a card for a deck that has subdecks, the plugin selects the whole deck rather than the subdeck, and I have to change it to the subdeck each time. Also, it is not possible to paste images into the sections in the fields tab in the image editor. This forces me to paste in images for each individual card after creating a set from one image. Great software otherwise.

Keep up the good work!

Amazing add-on
on 1569372436
way way too user unfriendly and doesn't work even after hours of persevering through failed attempts and the Anki version I have not coresponding AT ALL to the versions in the YouTube videos manuual etc.
I wanted to use image cards for Italian learning but I have now ecceeded the amount of hours I have invested in Italian with the hours trying to learn Anki
Italian is waaaaaay easier

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble getting things to work. If you post a thread on the add-on support forums or send me an email, I'm sure we can figure this out together: https://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/add-ons or ankiglutanimate@gmail.com
Anki does have a steep learning curve, but your experience sounds a lot more steep than it should be. Sometimes it's just about asking the right question, and then suddenly everything clicks.

Hi. Thanks for the feedback. However, quoting from the add-on description:

> Please do not use reviews for bug reports or support requests. I don't get notified of your reviews, and properly troubleshooting an issue through them is nearly impossible. Instead, please either use the issue tracker (preferred), add-on support forums, or just message me at ankiglutanimate@gmail.com. Constructive feedback and suggestions are always welcome!
Issue tracker: https://github.com/glutanimate/image-occlusion-enhanced/issues
Support forums: https://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/add-ons

Concerning your issue:

Don't click on the "Add" button in Anki's "Add" dialog. Instead, just click on "Hide All, Guess One" or "Hide One, Guess All" in the Image Occlusion window. That will add the cards to your collection immediately.
If those instructions are unclear: There are quite a few helpful tutorials on YouTube that go over the add-on's use. Just type in "image occlusion anki" and you should get some good recommendations. They all showcase which button to press.

If you are still having problems, please let me know through one of the proper support channels listed earlier. Using reviews for support requests like this is very frustrating, as users are unlikely to ever update them. This thumbs-down you added here will stick to the add-on forever if you don't decide to change it. It will still be around even when you have long figured out how to properly use the add-on... Not very cool, is it :( ?

Support forums: https://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/add-ons

Quoting from the changelog:

> "Hide All, Reveal All" is no longer available as a mask generation option. With the mask reveal button introduced in recent I/O releases it no longer served much of a purpose and was mostly confusing new users as they expected it to work like a grouped occlusion of all shapes.
> Just in case you were using this option and are now wondering how to cover the same use cases:
> - In case you were using "Hide All, Reveal All" to uncover all labels on the back: Try to switch to using "Hide One, Guess One" coupled with the mask reveal button on the backside (hotkey: G)
> - In case you were using "Hide All, Reveal All" to 'group' your shapes: Use the actual grouping feature instead: https://github.com/glutanimate/image-occlusion-enhanced/wiki/Advanced-Use#grouping-items

If you have a use case that is not covered by the options above, please let me know through one of the proper support channels listed earlier. Using reviews for support requests like this is very frustrating, as users are unlikely to ever update them. This thumbs-down you added here will stick to the add-on forever if you don't decide to change it. It will still be around even when your issue has been long resolved... Not very cool, is it :( ?

The most important innovation in learning this decade.

After I click the Add Image Occlusion, I am able to select my photo. The photo then shows up in the editor. However whenever I draw a shape in the Masks Editor window, the entire window grays out and I can no longer see my image or even make a card out of it. I am running MacOS 10.15 with Anki 2.1.14 with the latest version of Imagine Occlusion Enhanced.

Comment from author
Hi. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble getting the add-on to work. Image Occlusion Enhanced is working fine for tens of thousands of users across Windows, macOS, and Linux. I'd like to understand what's wrong in your case and help, but there is not much I can do without further information. If you want me to assist with troubleshooting, please file a bug report on GitHub (https://github.com/glutanimate/image-occlusion-enhanced/issues) or submit a new discussion thread on the add-on support forums (https://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/add-ons – no account needed).

When filing your report, please make sure to provide the following information: Which feature isn't working for you and which exact steps lead to that observation? Which operating system are you using? What other add-ons do you have installed?

Hi there. Just following up on this since I'm not sure if you saw my earlier reply. Have you managed to get things to work now? If so, I'd really appreciate it if you could update your rating on the add-on as it's kind of discouraging to have this downvote stuck to the add-on :(

I have tried over and over to make it work with 2.1, but it just won't work. The areas I block out never show up in the cards. It worked perfectly fine with 2.0. I made sure I was using this one (2.1, not the 2.0 version). Also made sure to be set up with the Beta Anki. Still not working!!

Really fantastic add-on! When I get my friends to start using anki, I forget that this doesn't come standard and then have to guide them on how to get it.

The only issue I am having with the updates version is I cannot figure out how to edit cards after you have made them. In 2.0 I would go to browse and then click the lil orange picture icon and I was good to go, but I can't figure out how to do that with the 2.1 version.
on 1538238300
Great add-on! It's been the main reason why my anatomy grades are way up this semester :)

I only have one issue and I'm not sure if there's a fix to this yet: every time I click my response, the masks quickly come off for around half a second and then come on again (save, of course, for the revealed occluded answer). This lag extends to around a second in Anki web. Weirdly enough it only happens for around 20% of the cards. It just throws my revision off a bit because I see a few answers beforehand.

Otherwise, it's the most useful add-on I've downloaded so far.
on 1538040434
Could you please add the possibility to write in a box, this would allow to write give information about what the box is hiding.
Otherwise great add-on

Comment from author
Reviewing image occlusions on AnkiDroid works, just like it does with any other platform in the Anki ecosystem

Creating image occlusions on AnkiDroid does not work because AnkiDroid does not support add-ons.

And since card creation on mobile is not advertised anywhere in the add-on description or documentation, I'm left wondering what your rating is all about.
