Instead of having copious dictionary entries on every single card, for instance, 1 new word, + 10 example sentences = 22 cards (1 recog, 1 production), one could now create a (suspended) 'dictionary/reference deck' and simply link to the relevant entry; which should reduce collection size …
PS: I copy lots and LOTS of dictionary/wikipedia entries into my cards while I'm online, b/c I need to learn/rep OFF-line …
i am using anki 2.1.40.
nid: edit card
If you have a problem let me know at: https://forums.ankiweb.net/t/link-cards-notes-and-preview-them-in-etra-window-official-thread/554
I have a little suggestion,the cid or nid maybe can change to the format [user can see| nid or cid ],just like the hyperlink
modified for Chinese + added colorization
I really need it as I use only ankidroid.
If you just want to search your notes for some words there are add-ons like "Reviewer Context Menu Search", https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/359618071.
If you actually want to link to another specific note or card their unique id (the number) must be stored in the note. I deliberately don't hide this number: If my add-on stops working one day (e.g. if I'm hit by a bus and no one else adapts it to future Anki updates) you can still use some of its functionality with an add-on like "Reviewer Context Menu Search".
There are add-ons that hide the number and instead show you a nice link text (as with other html hyperlinks).
About three years ago an add-on named "Internal References" (https://github.com/glutanimate/internal-references) was made for the old version 2.0. It was never updated for 2.1 so its links no longer work in 2.1. Someone who relied on this add-on would have to manually recreate the links or pay a developer to get the add-on updated.
For current Anki versions there's also Arthur's "Links between notes, cards, to open browser and previewer", https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1126950429, that should allow you to hide the note/card ids but there are some unexpected limitations like when you copy and paste such links on Windows the link targets get lost, see https://github.com/Arthur-Milchior/anki-link-to-open-browser/issues/5
Q2. Do I run the Tools->Reference Cards to Media Folder menu item? Is so, when and how often?
My situation is I have language cards from 3 sources (1 fr class I took, 1 fr dictionary I bought, 1 fr 2nd class I am taking at different school). I have a word that is present in all three 'decks' but I want to preserve the dictionary and maybe the card from other class (it matches the book/DVD that came with class). So best idea I can come up with is make card for present class and in the footnote field include reference links to dictionary deck (gives overkill information) and previous class' card. I use tags and also special grouping field in all my cards but using these hyperlinks is cleanest way to access similar information. I *need* same card in multiple decks but with unique qualities depending on purpose of deck...so this is it!
Ex. huwa (means 'he') is in my ARA101, AR-EN dictionary and my SARF101 decks.
I thought,nobody will create an addon for linking notes. But here I am..... :)
This is an amazing Addon,very useful......
Thanks a lot for developing the addon.....
No. The add-on version for Anki 2.1.24 depends on new features from Anki 2.1.24 so it won't work with older Anki versions like Anki 2.1.22.
The old version of my add-on is lacking some features that are in the description because some of the new features depend on Anki features from 2.1.24.
> Can you link the 2.1.22 version?
If you use an older Anki version and install an add-on Anki automatically downloads the version appropriate for your Anki version. If you use Anki 2.1.22 Anki will download the old version of my add-on.
how about copying nid or cid with prefix together? so we can just copy nid/cid button on context menu in the browse mode, and then just paste in the field in the edit mode.
now we have to manually type the cidd or nidd as a prefix
Thanks for updating to reflect my opinion. It works great!
It increases the learning effect by making connections between materials.
If you still use this add-on and have Anki 2.1.24 or later: Could you update and let me know if you run into problems.
Thank you very much.
So far I don't really understand your problem. If you are motivated you could post a screencast or a differently worded description to github. Once I see a screencast maybe I'll have an idea. But maybe not.
I was a loyal user of the addon "internal reference" in ANKI 2.0 and I am really lucky to see this addon could replace that without any bugs.
The latest version can also show just the question of linked cards - so that you can show your IR cards that are made from the IR3 note type in a preview window.
But it doesn't work the other way: You can't have clickable hyperlinks in your IR cards themselves. The IR add-on overwrites built-in functions from Anki that my add-on relies on. That's a problem of the IR add-on that also breaks other add-ons like "Pop-up Dictionary". The next version of the IR add-on should fix this (see this commit: https://github.com/luoliyan/incremental-reading/commit/7901a43b6d64a87d06af834a2ad90cb54c2d6c4b#diff-99cc40076232bade658c8123c4d6e01a) . But this hasn't been released to Ankiweb yet.
In the meantime a workaround might be to use the add-on "Modified reviewer context menu search with browser search" so that at least you can open these cards/notes in the browser from your IR cards.
