Hint Hotkeys

Adds two hotkeys to the reviewer: 'H' to reveal hints one by one, 'G' to reveal all hints at once. Both hotkeys can be customized at the top of the add-on's source code. This add-on is an updated version of Hint-peeking Keyboard Bindings by Ben Lickly. All credit for the original idea goes to him. COMPATIBILITY Initial tests have shown this add-on to both work on Anki 2.0.x and Anki 2.1.x. However, as the Anki 2.1.x line of releases is still in beta, I cannot provide any kind of official support for this platform. Please do not report issues with Anki 2.1 in the review section below. Instead, please report all issues you encounter on GitHub. CHANGELOG 2017-08-23 – Initial release SUPPORT Please do not report issues or bugs in the review section below, as I will not be able to reply to them nor help you. Instead, please report all issues you encounter either on GitHub, or by posting a new thread on the Anki add-on support forums while mentioning the name of the affected add-on in your thread title. CREDITS AND LICENSE Copyright (c) 2012 Ben Lickly Copyright (c) 2016-2017 Glutanimate Licensed under the GNU AGPL v3. The code for this add-on is available on GitHub.

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.

Works simply and well. I love being able to use hotkeys to feed me my hints. Thanks so much for writing this!

Really useful add-on ~ thanks a lot!

I added 'Alt' to the shortcut, so it works when a type field is active

1. Go to Add on > Hint Hotkeys > View Files
2. Open "reviewer_hint_hotkeys.py" with Notepad
3. Change this line
# Shortcut that will reveal all hint fields at once:
with Z is the hotkey you want to change to. I use Z since it does not bind to any others function.

Thank Glutamine for the amazing add-on.

PLEASE fix the "H" replaying the audio for built in tts and not revealing the hint.
I even tried to switch the hot key to something else which still produced the audio replaying.

Very useful!

Works great other than I could not get 'g' to work to show all, and could not find any other add on shortcuts using 'g' after digging through all the files, so changed it to 'shift+H' and now it works to show all.

Works for me on 2.1.26, with one minor caveat:
h+g, in addition to revealing hints, also trigger audio files to be replayed, if those files come before the hint.
If one can live with that, the addon is still useful.
