Mini Format Pack

0.02MB. Updated 2018-07-25.
The author has shared 65 other item(s).


     This is a quick stripped-down version of Stefan van den Akker's Power Format Pack add-on. It is designed to work with Anki 2.1, but it is only meant as a holdover until someone finds the time to port PFP in its entirety (or until similar features arrive in Anki itself). Please don't expect any further major additions like markdown support, etc. FEATURES CHANGELOG Version 0.1.1 – 2018-07-24 Fixed You can view all past releases here. CONFIGURATION The add-on offers some limited configuration capabilities, but they are not as fleshed out nor as user-friendly as PFP. You will have to use Anki 2.1's built-in config manager to update the config dictionary (Tools → Add-ons → Select Mini Format Pack → Click configure). The properties you can modify include: Your changes will be applied once you restart your editor window (if running). Please do not change the 'name' property, as this is used to assign the corresponding button to the function it calls. RELATED ADD-ONS If you're looking for even more powerful formatting features in Anki 2.1, make sure to also check out some of the following add-ons: HELP AND SUPPORT Please do not use reviews for bug reports or support requests.

The shortcut cmd+shift+[ or cmd+shift+] doesn't work for me? When I do that, I switch tabs for example from decks to add to browse... How do I solve this?

Works well on 2.1 with enough functionality for me
on 1618711938
I'm not sure if this might seem to some people like it doesn't add that much, but honestly, you've got to get it even if just for:
* bullet points / unordered list
* numbered bullet points / ordered list
* indent

If you're a coder, and don't want anything fancy, the 'insert code block' tool is a quick font change for that. (I usually want something more advanced and use a different add-on for that, but still find myself using this on occasion.)

I've actually each of the features at least once or twice, so the others can come in handy too. But, like bullet points and indenting, I find invaluable for about 3 in every 4 cards I make!

display: block;

on 1599073619
New to Anki. Love this add-on. Really helps organize my cloze deleted notes. Haven't ran into issues with compatibility
on 1597715703
Lovely add on. My only feedback is that the bullet points/number list does not follow when I try to center the text etc. and stays on the left side.
on 1597665029
Using a German keybord, the shortcuts "Ctrl + [..." do not work as for "[" and "]" and so on one must use "Alt Gr" additionally..... (or at least i dont know how to use the shortcuts :D, maybe someone can enlighten me :D)

But the Addon works great, thanks :)
on 1597290780
Ahora es mucho más cómodo que tener todo en texto centrado...
on 1595103605
one problem:

the identation is not working in 2.1.22 allright (2.1.26 has the same problem)

It idents, but if you copy and paste what you wrote, the copy wont be the same. Some extra linebreak appears


you can see in the field ''extra1'' (where I pasted the text from Extra), that appeared one line break that wasnt there.

the html code changes:

1) original text:

XXXXXXXX<div><blockquote style="margin: 0 0 0 40px; border: none; padding: 0px;">xxxxxxxxxxx</blockquote></div>

2) copy:


I know that I could copy and paste the html instead, but this is improductive...

So, can you fix this? would help a lot.

Obs: i disabled all the other addons and the problem remained.

good good vwery good
on 1593591043
super useful.
on 1593509147
This add-on is great, I just think maybe there is a bug on the option that aligns the text to the left. When i use it, it doesn't seem to work properly (the text doesn't align to the left in preview or while reviewing) unless I center the text first, and then use the align left option.
on 1592211281

I wonder why it's not a full format pack. However, thanks for sharing.

Great! Really helped me out creating my cards in anki 2.1.. Only thing missing is the function to choose a format for the ordered list :(
on 1562195334
cannot remove highlights and change font colour to original, also cannot use superscript
Comment from author
I'm sorry, but I can't reproduce any of those issues here: I can remove both font color, highlight color, and any other type of formatting applied either by the add-on or Anki itself using the "Remove Formatting" button (Fx icon, Ctrl+R). Superscript works perfectly for me, although it's worth noting that this is a built-in feature of Anki, not something the add-on provides. Please see the Anki manual section on Editing for more details: https://apps.ankiweb.net/docs/manual.html#features

Should you still be unable to use any of the aforementioned features, then you will have to provide me with more information on the exact issue you're experiencing in order for me to be able to help you. As mentioned in the add-on description above:

I'm sorry for the previous grade that I gave. Indent and Outdent have already work well when I toggled the Chinese input to English one.
I do really appreciate your work for this add-on. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience.
Comment from author
Edit: I'm glad you managed to resolve the issue! No worries, things like that can happen :). Thank you for the kind words and the rating!


Hi. Sorry to hear that. They work fine for me and quite a few other users, but perhaps there is something specific to your Anki installation or system that's preventing them from being triggered. With shortcuts it's oftentimes a conflict with another add-on.

As requested in the add-on description please either file a bug report on the issues tracker (https://github.com/glutanimate/mini-format-pack/issues) or submit a new thread on the official add-on support forums (https://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/add-ons). The latter requires no account to be registered.

When doing so please add more information on your Anki version, your operating system, and whether you are using any other add-ons. It would also be interesting to know if setting a different keyboard shortcut in the add-on configuration screen helps.

Without this information there isn't much I can do to help.

Seems like this was an issue with the highlight button. Just uploaded a fix that should address this. Make sure to give it a try!
