Highlight Search Results in the Browser

<10kB. Updated 2018-02-17. Supports both Anki 2.0.x and 2.1.x.


Highlights search results in the Editor pane of the Browser and extends the search bar with two new search modes. SCREENSHOTS COMPATIBILITY The add-on should work on both Anki 2.0 and Anki 2.1. However, as the Anki 2.1 release line 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. USAGE By default the add-on will highlight all search terms that aren't search operators. You can temporarily disable search highlighting by using the provided View menu entry, or its associated hotkey (Ctrl+T, H). In addition to search highlights the following new hotkeys are provided in the search bar: CONFIGURATION The following settings can be configured by editing the add-on's source code: LIMITATIONS The add-on will search through the entire editor screen, field descriptions included. CHANGELOG 2018-02-17 – Ported to Anki 2.1 2017-08-16 – Initial release SUPPORT Please do not report issues or bugs in the review section below. I can't reply to your reviews, so there is no way for me to help you.

great, but I have a question, how can i change the color of the highlighter? in dark mode the highlighter changes text to white on a yellow background and I can't see the words :(

I was in need for something like this for many years. I had actually sent an email to the Anki developers to incorporate it in one of the future editions, but with little success. I can't thank you enough Glutanimate! You add-ons are simply great!

You're a genius!

This was so nice to have exactly what I needed when skimming through hundreds of results. Can't imaging Anki without it after a couple of use.

This is exactly what I need to do!!

Awesome! Helps draw my eyes to what I'm searching for.

Absolutely great. In the past few years, my Notes section has become ever more important and thus also longer. I add ideas for articles, short bibliographies, etc. Thank you so much!

Almost perfect

I had a problem with deck names. The addon search for deck names too.

Very functional!

Thanks for this helpful feature. I have a suggestion to improve your add-on, that is to highlight the search term with and without accents, I do use the "Ignore accents" add-on and when I use that feature there is no highlight on accented words if I do search without it.

Congratulations! You discovered another hidden treasure.

This add-on really helps me to learn conjugations and etymology.
