Find and Replace in the Note Editor

<10kB. Updated 2017-08-16. Only supports Anki 2.0.
The author has shared 65 other item(s).


Provides a find and replace dialog in the Editor that alternatively allows for free-form text replacements or updating cloze indexes in selected text. SCREENSHOT COMPATIBILITY This add-on only works with Anki's stable release branch (2.0.x ≥ 2.0.30). The 2.1 beta branch is not supported at this point in time. USAGE The find and replace dialog can either be invoked by clicking on the provided button or using the assigned shortcut (Ctrl+T, R, i.e. press Ctrl+T, release the keys, press R). You can either choose to replace specific phrases, or to update instances of a specific cloze index to a new number. Replacements will be performed on the current text selection. If you don't select anything before invoking the dialog, the add-on will automatically act on the entirety of the current field. Actions can be reversed by using Anki's default undo shortcut (Ctrl+Z) LIMITATIONS Like Anki's built-in find-and-replace dialog, this add-on works on the HTML-level. As a result, you might not be able to replace strings that you think you should be able to replace. For instance, if a phrase is partially bold then the underlying HTML code would look like this: bo<b>ld</b>. In that case the add-on would only be able to find that sequence with the keyword bo<b>ld</b>, and not with bold.
