I'm on macOS Mojave, with Anki 2.1.15.
I have 16 fields and this has simplified my data enter. No more scrolling to enter data.
Really useful ! but it would be much better for users to customize the location of columns.
This add-on, to be useful, needs to implement:
*single column; and
*scroll each column separated.
I'm not sure why, but this add-on will change fields within your existing notes. See here:
What this means is that if you have a <table> element in any of your fields, this add-on will force the width of the first <td> to be 28px. I was flabbergasted when I saw this happening to me and couldn't figure out what was the problem but I traced the issue to this add-on. This is particularly pernicious because the description doesn't mention that this add-on would edit anything contained within notes. Use with extreme caution!!
Thanks. It works well for me.
It doesn't work for me (OS X Mavericks). To be more precise, I see the configuration for the columns, but I don't get two columns if I set it to 2.
… one caveat:
If you tick fields from somewhere down the line to be 'Single Row', then they get advanced in the display; for example if field No 4 gets ticked 'Single Row', then it is displayed as the first field in the Add-dialogue. You cannot TAB through all the fields in the usual order anymore.
I'd prefer that the display order in the browser ALWAYS stays the same, i.e. corresponds to the field order of the note type.
This is a feature-request … ;)
Otherwise, a 'must-have' add-on for heavy-duty Ankinauts!
Thanks for writing this. It makes modifying my notes faster. It also makes is quicker to browse my notes.
