Merge Notes

Suppose you have a subs2srs deck. Due to the way subs2srs works usually many sentences in the deck are split between multiple notes. This addon adds a button to the Anki Browser that allows you to merge contents of selected cards. I recommend converting all notes to one note type before merging them. The add-on will ignore the fields that are present in one note but are not present in the other. Features
  1. Merge or duplicate selected notes.
  2. Change settings before merging. To open quick settings, click "Edit" > "Merge Fields Settings" in the Anki Browser.
  3. Ability to specify a field separator. You can decide what string is inserted as a separator between the merged fields.
  4. Merge tags of selected cards.
  5. Delete original notes after merging.
  6. Choose direction of the merge: by Due number, by Sort Field or by Sort Field (numeric). The latter checks if there's a number in the field and sorts by the number first.
  7. Merge in reverse order.
  8. Skip non-empty fields to perform a partial merge.
  9. Merge duplicate notes. Go to "Browser" > "Notes" > "Find duplicates", search duplicates and click "Merge duplicates" after the search has finished.
Configuration To configure the add-on, click "AJT" > "Merge Fields Options". Before merging duplicates, I recommend enabling the "Delete original notes" option. Field separator is the string inserted between the merged fields. It is empty by default, but you can change it to a space, comma or any HTML tag like <br>. You can also use escaped characters like "\n" or "\t" to insert a linebreak or tab. Screenshots Merge notes Merge duplicates (anki 2.1.48+) Join our community Want to discuss this add-on?

Amazing plug-in!!!!
After trying different workarounds, this is the best method I've found to do what I wanted. Basically, I wanted to add a couple of new columns to a deck that had already HTML and multimedia. This solved my issue.
Thank you for the amazing work and the amount of hours you saved me!

As someone who makes their decks by collecting cards and data from several sources, I can testify that de-duplicating is key for efficiency.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but it has an easily understandable and well-structured description, so I upvote. I might become useful in the future.

Thank you VERY VERY MUCH I REALY like it and VERY useful one. Is there any way to make space between the words when the cards merged? because I have to go manually to make a space in each word. THANK YOU AGIN.

I'm very happy that you like it! Please check the "Field separator" setting that can be accessed by clicking "Edit" > "Merge Fields Settings" in the Card Browser.

Thank you for the review! I have added a config option to delete redundant notes after the merge.

This would be useful to me if it doubled as duplicate merger (ie., those selected with the same sort field / same sort field and marked as duplicate).

edit: Uhm, I tried manually selecting two duplicates and merging it with the addon (on .36 beta)… both these original notes are deleted, and no combined one is created. I guess it's bugged as both notes are new/have to due value (I'm using a temp profile)?
