Force custom font
<10kB. Updated 2012-08-23. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.
As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are
malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.
This add-on previously supported Anki 2.0. You can
download the last version supporting
2.0 here. As Anki 2.0 has
been discontinued, no support is available for this version.
All Anki 2.1.x Add-Ons
Replace the word "QWebSettings" by "QWebEngineSettings"
It will work for 2.1
Works as intended in day mode, but messes up the dark theme.
One of the essentials!
To the person that is complaining about the add-on not working when displaying cards, you need to know that cards follow the styling determined by the note type, namely by the Style section when customizing cards. So you'll need to do some CSS to change the font used in cards.
Does not work on Mac OS High Sierra on Anki 2.0
This helps. The interface was completely unusable for me on Windows 10 without this change. I edited the file and switched to Verdana, and it's a huge improvement. It's still not a very crisp font on my Windows 10 computer, compared to the font on web pages, but it's probably usable. (I don't remember this being an issue on my old Windows 7 computer.)
Does not work on Anki 2.1 with iOS High Sierra.
Addon with Anki 2.0 does not change previewing font. Font is changed in menus and deck overview, but does not change font when displaying cards.
Very useful improvement of the user interface. Changed the Times back into Arial, because I'm OK with that, but the tip to set the font size with "mw.fontHeight = 16" was very useful to me! Thanks!
PLEASE, I REQUEST THIS ADD-ON TO BE DEVELOPPED FOR ANKI 2.1, TOO.:)
Works like a charm, thanks.
Using this mostly to increase the font size.
That is what i have been found for a while. Great!
But there's a little regret that it can only change global font but not specified to languages.
Thank you, Howto
Thanks for the great addon and suggestion by Howto
Quite useful, also for increasing the font *size*. To do so, replace the line
mw.fontHeight = f.pixelSize()
mw.fontHeight = 16
