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?

Thank you, this version works perfectly!

I've heard lots of good things about this add-on. Can't wait to try it!!
on 1560511189
Thank you!

But the hide all, reveal all option isn't there? I think another user commented the same thing too :)
on 1560164904
Great Addon! Thank you so much!

For some reason, Hide all reveal all option is missing. Only hide all guess one, Hide one, guess one.

where's the add card button?
Comment from author
Huge buttons in the bottom right corner: https://i.imgur.com/6pAdqsw.png
Or as a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyU2W7VgBmw
Kind of disheartening, however, that you'd leave a downvote just because you needed help with figuring things out. The add-on description above includes both links to written tutorials, video tutorials, a dedicated support thread, and even a contact email. Kind of unfair not to even give add-on authors a chance to help you, no?
on 1559832683
One of, if not the most handiest add-on there is.

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!!
on 1557449529
Awesome, great for med school

Please enter a reason:

Well, so much work has gone into this and I saw that guy that rated this bad because he was too smart to figure out it doesn't work on Android.

A must-have!

This is so good if you are in med school and need to study for anatomy for instance. You are awesome mate!
on 1539699855
You guys are the best

love u people!!!
on 1539005395
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

Great addon. Saves a lot of time.

I can't use it in android
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.

Figure to card with no friction!
on 1536116964
Works pretty well no bugs I've noticed so far. I wish it would warn you if you accidentally quit without creating cards.

Glad to hear that! And thanks for the feedback about the window closing warning. It's on my to-do list.
