remove linebreaks / do word wrap

0.03MB. Updated 2022-09-29.
The author has shared 77 other item(s).


This add-on tries to remove all line breaks from selected text or when no text is selected the whole field. This is e.g. useful when pasting text from PDF files. This add-on offers some configuration options (like the shortcut). You should adjust the default shortcut combination. If the shortcut suddenly stops working you should check if you have a shortcut conflict: If the same shortcut is set twice (e.g in Anki and one add-on or in two add-ons) then the shortcut is not working anymore. # some features - if text is selected, only the selection is affected. - can be called from context menu - you can undo the action with Ctrl+Z - tries to preserve double line breaks - the add-on tries to remove "-" which are at the end of the line. A crude algorithm is used that might remove too much or too little. # Versions - 2022-09-28 fix for 2.1.50+, better soft hyphen removal, some code cleanup - 2021-12-11 new icon I like better, misc - 2021-04-12 fix for 2.1.41+ - 2020-05-11 always undo with Ctrl/Cmd+Z, keep formatting when replacing whole field contents. Both changes are made possible by moving the replacing code from python to js (in the webview). Now the add-on always tries to remove "-" at the end of a line, there's no more user setting to deactivate this. If you still have such a user setting it will have no effect. - 2019-04-11 initial release # Problems, Bugs, Errors, Improvements There's a good chance that you'll find bugs. If you find one or have a bug fix or improvement you can tell me in the official support forum or on github. # other authors This add-on is an extended modification of RemoveLinebreak (which has been unchanged for over three years and looks abandoned). - 2016 Remco32 - 2014 Jeff Baitis

This add-on is so helpful, I use it for textbooks that have many page breaks, and creating flashcards was so much faster, I would apreciate so much if you could update this add-on now that the courses began again.

Very very useful - especially if you copy text from pdf. Many thanks!

Proposal for a useful option (at least for me): pdf texts (from books) often have Non-breaking space which fucks up my cards every time. So, what I must do: go to the browser, select the cards, do a find and replace: replacing "&nbsp" with " " (just a normal space). That’s quite cumbersome. If possible (and it’s probably easily implemented) this option could be added to the addon.

that sounds useful. I'll make a note to include this in the next update. In the meantime the add-on https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/356095608 should also help (though it's an additional shortcut) but it should be faster than going over the browser.

Works great with the Button. Can you please add keyboard shortcut?
Comment from author
The default shortcut is "Ctrl+Alt+0". If another add-on also uses the same shortcut this won't work.

You can adjust the shortcut from the add-on window (Main Window -> Tools - Add-ons. Then the add-on window opens. then select the name of this add-on, then click the "Config" button in the right of this window ).
