<10kB. Updated 2013-06-10. Only supports Anki 2.0.
The author has shared 19 other item(s).


Small one-trick pony add-on that does what View Size Adjust’s name promises, but just that, for those that got scared off by all the functions to add cards or to do incremental reading. Functions: The zoom is reset when you switch the main screen (change between deck browser/deck overview/review). For each, there can be a standard zoom factor set in the add-on file. Use the Add-ons menu to edit this. (For example, when you want the deck list in a bigger font, but have the cards themselves set up all right already.) There is an Anki 2.1 version of this, which isn’t maintained by me. (Tbh, this one isn’t really maintained any more either.)


The add-on author has not uploaded a version of this add-on compatible with Anki 2.1. Old add-ons for Anki 2.0 can be downloaded from the archive.

Thanx big help

Works a bunch! Thank you!

Would be a nice addon but on HiDPI screens it seems to reset the rendering for the whole application to 100%. I use a Thinkpad X250 with a 12" screen and 1920x1080 display resolution at 125% UI scaling in Windows 10. If Zoom is disabled Anki 2.1 looks fine, if Zoom is enabled the texts and buttons of Anki itself are tiny.

For the text it's not bad as I can zoom in thanks to the addon. But the buttons on top and bottom stay tiny.

Would ne nice if the addon would respect the UI scaling factor set by the OS.

Hi everyone, this is a wonderful add-on but unfortunately the zoom function resets if you press "undo" (which happens quite a lot). I figured out how to prevent this from happening, but modifying the code this way also prevents the zoom function from resetting when you enter the library mode.

In def reset_zoom(state=None, *args):, comment out the following lines with #:
if 'review' == state:
standard_zoom = review_standard_zoom

bom pra quem tem visão ruim.

(I wish there was a middle option...)

This is really helpful, but there are a few improvements needed.
- The zoom isn't remembered if you close and re-open Anki.
- The zoom isn't remembered if you go into and out of the same deck, or into another deck.
- it breaks as soon as you try to edit a card. It won't zoom the edit window contents, and after exiting that window the main window zoom reverts back to what it was before, so you have to re-zoom.

It is a really useful plugin, but it's annoying to have to re-apply the zooming all the time...

Extremely easy to use, and does exactly what it says on the tin.
on 1531844932
Super handy as the native app is otherwise teeny tiny on a high-res screen.
on 1530438104
That's pretty neat. Thanks.
on 1529367110
Works great. Simple and effective

Thanks, pretty much essential for anyone one studying Chinese in a high resolution display.

works flawlessly with text
on 1523404800
This is really PERFECT!!!
on 1521244800
My deck has inline style, using !important is not possible unless I edit all my cards with a new class. Using the scale feature same as the mobile version is the best solution.
on 1519603200
undo a review it goes back to the default size. !!!Would be better it this didn't happen
on 1518480000
Muito útil!
on 1517356800
Works as intended. :)
on 1514160000
Perfect. As with other reviewers, I find that a zoom in function is important when you want to be able to see the intricacies of Chinese characters. Not so necessary for reading, but if you're practicing writing and you want to be sure you're getting every last detail right, it's quite necessary. Otherwise I'd have to just stick with the Android version of Anki which can zoom by default.
on 1512864000
It works fine, however whenever I undo a review it goes back to the default size. Would be better it this didn't happen

Great for zooming text. Does not zoom images.

For zooming text it is 5 stars.
But zooming images is an essential features which many users have commented on.
Please incorporate zooming images to this add-on.
Thank you so far for your work.

Great for laptops displaying asian languages. No more eye strain! ;)
on 1471305600

One of the best add ons I've seen yet!!! Thank you so much!!!
on 1470873600

Thanks man, using Anki on a laptop can be hard on the eyes as the text is too small. I don't usually review stuff but I just had to say a massive thanks to you for this. Thanks again!!!
on 1468281600
Just what I was looking for

With the desktop client, I can now use Ctrl +/- to make the text of Chinese characters bigger/smaller.

Works perfect

Thank you for this great add-on ;-)
on 1461283200
Doesn't work on images :l

But will be useful for those who want a bigger font. I want to thank the uploader for the effort, anyways.
on 1457481600
Doesn't Zoom Images

Only makes typed fonts bigger. Doesn't 'zoom' in on images.
on 1456963200

it's doesn't zoom in, it just makes the font a bigger size.
not what i was looking for. i can use a bigger font if i want without an addon.

Zooms, unzooms, lets you set a standard zoom level. It's pretty cool.

Simple and to the points. Just what I needed!

Your text is too small? That's the add-on for you :D My Ankilayout is perfect now!

So simple and yet so useful

The add-on does what is says and does it well.

Hopefully this feature will be part of Anki in the future.

One minor annoyance: The zoom will reset if you suspend/delete a card. To change this behaviour you can comment the following line out by prepending a '#':

#addHook("movedToState", reset_zoom)

Saved my day!

Don't know why the default font size is so big in Anki.

This should be a built-in feature.

Perfect for high resolution monitors

Fonts looked too small to read comfortably on my Surface Pro 3 (SP3). Installing this made it easy to read my flashcards! Thank you to the developer.

I'm so glad I thought to look if someone wrote an add on for this function. No idea why it's not just built in.

Just what I needed

On the surface pro 3 anki displays very small text, in order for me to study my chinese cards I had to struggle to see the cards clearly. This add-on is just the right medicine to my delimma

Verry Helpful

Thanks a lot for this! :-)

@other users: You don't have to zoom in every time. The zoom level can be saved.
Go to: Tools → Add-ons → Zoom → Edit...
Then change:
each to for example 2.5 then save the changes and restart Anki.

This is what that other mess of an add-on should've been.
