Cross Profile Search and Import

0.01MB. Updated 2019-05-29.


This add-on allows you to find and import notes from another profile into your currently loaded profile. For example, you can make a "sentence bank" profile where you store thousands of cards generated by subs2srs, and then use this add-on to search for and import cards with certain words into your main profile. This helps keep your main profile uncluttered and free of large amounts of unneeded media.

Sorry for bad feedback. Deck not importing in 2.1.31

Thanks for this Add-On, I'm using it every day.

Apart from sentence banks, here's another use case:

If you're using the MIA/Migaku retirement addons to move fully learned cards to a 'retirement deck', you might eventually want to export this 'retirement deck' to a dedicated 'Archive Profile', to prevent your 'daily-use-profile' from becoming too large, esp. the media folder; and thus not having to sync unused cards/media files.
With the 'Cross Profile Search and Import' addon, you can still easily search your 'Archive Profile', just in case you want to re-import / re-learn some old cards.

Wish list, ideas, suggestions ;)

* sticky window sizes and drop-down menu choices
* integrate search bar in stock Anki Card Browser
* possibility to search ALL decks in ALL profiles at once

Going to use a sentence bank externally for J-J Dictionary words, along with a small bank of a handful of shows in my main deck to go through shows consecutively. I think using this combination seems pretty solid.

Very useful, thank you for the exemplary use case.

edit: would be cool if it worked on a higher level (e.g. you have the low-level decks "Medicine::Anatomy" and "Medicine::Pathology", but the higher-level deck "Medicine" is empty)

Great add-on! I make cards for a couple of kids, this is perfect for sharing cards between them.

Is there any chance of copying the tags, too?

Sorry for bad feedback. It doesn't work on 2.1.7

Well-designed and easy to use! Great for anyone dealing with a large number of shared decks they want to draw cards from.
