Editor Live Preview

<10kB. Updated 2022-08-08.


This plugin adds a live preview to all your card editors. It was written out of pure annoyance of having to open the "Cards..." screen every time.


As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

Supported Anki versions:

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.

Great addon! For some reason custom set delimiters via script (i.e. <script>MathJax.config.tex.inlineMath = [['$', '$'], ['\\(', '\\)']]; MathJax.config.tex.displayMath = [['$$', '$$'], ['\\[', '\\]']];</script>) are not executed, but the rest is

I wish this was part of the standard app. Anki's preview window is kind of clunky. It disappears if you don't have a card selected. This add-on is great!

This should be a standard toggle!

Really cool addon, but is there a way to set a default preview height/setting? Every time I want to use it, I have to drag the bar up to see the live preview. I would like it to always display. Maybe I'm missing something but a solution would be great. Thanks.

Very convenient, works incredibly well. Love the toggle button to turn it on/off in the browser. Great addon!

Would like to see an option to display the front of the card rather than just the back. Also noticed on cloze cards with multiple clozes, it only displays the c1 card and not c2 or c3.

Great for editing math cards in LeTeX.
This would be even better if it supported 2.1.40. I currently have Resize Images, Pop-up Dictionary and Frozen Fields disabled. I will just switch back and forth between v2.1.40 and v2.1.41 depending on my needs. Regardless, a very useful add-on that should come with every install of Anki.

Very nice addon, I've wanted this for so long can't believe it was actually this simple (at least in terms of lines of code).

Nice Add-on, thanks! It would be great if it could have a option to change the default version to see without the preview...then you press the button to show it when wanted, the opposite of what is now. Thanks again ^^
