Duplicate Selected Notes

<10kB. Updated 2017-08-30.
The author has shared 59 other item(s).


This add-on supplements the card browser by adding a keyboard shortcut and menu entry for creating duplicates of notes. USAGE Pressing the shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+C by default) or clicking on the Create Duplicate entry in the Edit menu will find all notes belonging to the selected cards and duplicate them in place. COMPATIBILITY Initial tests have shown this add-on to both work on Anki 2.0.x and Anki 2.1.x. However, as the Anki 2.1.x line of releases is still in beta, I cannot provide any kind of official support for this platform. Please do not report issues with Anki 2.1 in the review section below. Instead, please report all issues you encounter on GitHub. IMPORTANT NOTES CHANGES 2017-08-23 – Initial 2.1 compatibility 2017-08-06 – Refactored code 2016-04-30 – Duplications can now be undone via CTRL+Z (using Anki's default restoration points) SUPPORT Please do not report issues or bugs in the review section below, as I will not be able to reply to them nor help you. Instead, please report all issues you encounter either on GitHub, or by posting a new thread on the Anki add-on support forums while mentioning the name of the affected add-on in your thread title.

Works fine, but there's no "duplicate" tag or something so its hard to find them after they got mixed up.
edit: create deck(ctrl+d) works the same way. try it

Very useful to me!

Thanks so much for creating this add-on. It works perfectly with Mandarin cards and saves me so much time. My only complaint is that I couldn't find it on the Anki Shared Decks page. Thank goodness I thought of searching on the Internet. Bless you.

Add-on worked perfectly for me as described.

Works well, including with Chinese chars, including with audio files attached. Very useful, many thanks!
on 1532509581
It doesn´t support Chinese characters and it didn´t duplicate the audio files attached to the cards! It´s a pity because the rest of the addon seems to be working perfectly but because of this it was useless for my purposes. :)

Would be nice if you could file a bug report, as requested in the add-on description: https://github.com/Glutanimate/anki-addons-misc/issues. Attaching a sample deck of a few cards that exhibit this behaviour would also help. I can't test the add-on against all languages. It's simply not feasible time-wise. :)

Does its job

Perfect for when you want to add a new card that has similar content. Not any problems so far, thank you very much!
