Add note id
As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.
To download this add-on, please copy and paste the following code into Anki 2.1:
If you were linked to this page from the internet, please open Anki on your computer, go to the Tools menu and then Add-ons>Browse & Install to paste in the code.
This add-on previously supported Anki 2.0. You can download the last version supporting 2.0 here. As Anki 2.0 has been discontinued, no support is available for this version.

When I opened an add window, nothing happened, my field "Note ID" was empty.
This worked for me: "There is also a menu item that goes through the collection and fills all fields called "Note ID" with the nid."
But with the main feature not working I disabled the add-on and moved my "Note ID" field to the bottom. I will leave it empty and would use the menu item to fill the "Note ID" field before exporting the notes.
My Anki Version is 2.1.32 (dee7d45d)
I am going to use "Note ID" field for identification of notes in a shared deck, so I could update notes later and the users could download my updates.
By the way I would not use "Note ID" for synonyms, because there are better ways to threat them. The best way is to always use example sentences to narrow down the possible answer by providing context, but if you use words without context, you can do it the following way:
Q1: the regular paid work that you do (syn: employment, occupation)
Q2: the regular paid work that you do (syn: job, occupation)
But beyond that also, every new card I create gets the same ID: -15000....000
Works with Anki v2.1.22 (0ecc189a) as of 4/10/20.
Will overwrite the unique note-id "Gid" (required by "Pull from duolingo") if "NoteIdFieldName" is set ot "Gid".
If "NoteIdFieldName" is something else, "Pull from duolingo" will not be able to obtain the latest new words.
2. To make it work with frozen fields, use the modified add-on called "Ze Add note id" instead.
But it would be perfect if the ID can be hidden to users (or make it optional).
but is not compatible with Frozen field
solution is download Ze Add note id
Does exactly what it says it does. I needed this add on when developing a flashcard app for android. Needed some way to uniquely identify flashcards in my SQLite table so I could map 1:* relationships when exporting from anki.
This addon works excellent and allows me to more easily share decks with people. (For decks that have their content updated/modified from time to time).
Implemented this when me and my girlfriend started learning Esperanto. Great for keeping our collections up-to-date.
