At first it did not work on Anki 2.1.50. when I press yes on it's confirmation dialog, it shows an endless processing dialog. I had to end the Anki by TASK MANAGER of windows 10. Tonight I just updated Anki to (2.1.51) and it works.

Version ⁨2.1.50 (26d40c3a)⁩ -------------> 2.1.51 (QT 5)
Python 3.9.7 Qt 5.15.2 PyQt 5.15.5

This is the most useful and necessary add-on there is. I've used it for years and couldn't use Anki without it.

Inspired by Batch Note Editing and more powerful!
on 1604236187
Very helpful! I tweaked a deck, and somehow the contents of two fields got switched. I easily put them back in the right place, thanks to this add-on.

One note: I could not install this add-on until I deleted Batch Editing. But when I deleted Batch Editing, installed this add-on, restarted, installed Batch Editing again, and restarted, they were both there, and both work in simple tests.

very good, very useful

This was very useful, I locally modified the code to remap all RTK1 4th edition kanji numbers to RTK1 6th edition numbers with a custom mapping. I could see myself using this again for more custom changes to a set of cards, it's very easy to modify for a custom purpose by just changing the __init__ and process functions.
Thanks a lot !

Worked like a charm to copy a field to an another field with my +2000 cards

Many thanks. This is essential. I used it to copy the contents of field 1 to field 2 – without deleting it in field 1. It worked great.

Works perfectly

With this plugin I was able to solve my problem of swapping 1000 of Front and Back in one click instead of I don't know how many hours.

Great! Super Useful! I've searched these functions for a long time.

Saved me a job

I wanted to copy FieldName1, FieldName2, FieldName3,... to a new combined field and this add-on did the job perfectly through the Custom option.
Follows the standard Anki field markup ({{FieldName}}) so it was a doddle for me. Thanks very much!

A Very Useful addon

I have a Request here:
would you add an option that it first hide middle characters of the word and then copy it.
Meticulous >>> M--------s
ask>>> a-k
this would be very useful especially in language learning.
on 1491609600
Exactly what I needed

Copied the contents of one field to another field successfully. Thank you.

Awesome idea and implementation

Very well thought-out add-on. Love all the options you've included, especially the custom template mode. Great job, seriously!

Edit: Thanks a bunch for implementing the "move" action!
