Advanced Previewer

0.03MB. Updated 2017-08-06. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.


Extends the card preview window with the following new features: COMPATIBILITY This add-on only works with Anki's stable release branch (2.0.x ≥ 2.0.30). The 2.1 beta branch is not supported at this point in time. RELEASE LOG 2017-08-05: v0.4.1 – A few new features and major performance improvements 2017-03-23: v0.3.2 – Completely reworked the add-on, introducing card reviewing and a new options menu 2016-12-09: v0.2.1 – Added support for the "Replay Buttons on Card" and "JS Booster" add-ons 2016-12-04: v0.2.0 – Initial public release LATEST CHANGES AND NEWS 2017-08-05 – v0.4.1 USAGE Most of the features should be pretty self-explanatory, but I've recorded a quick video demonstration that should help you get started with the add-on: ADDITIONAL FEATURES Aside from the three main features mentioned above, Advanced Previewer also updates the previewer window in the following ways: OPTIONS Advanced Previewer comes with a simple options menu which can be invoked through ToolsAdvanced Previewer Options.... You can use this to enable card reviewing support, among other things: IMPORTANT NOTES Add-on Incompatibilities Advanced Previewer is incompatible with the following add-ons: Other add-ons that overwrite the previewer functions will also not work with Advanced Previewer. For add-on authors that are interested in adding support for Advanced Previewer to their add-ons: Please refer to anki-previewer-tagbrowser. py for an example of how third-party add-ons can be integrated into the previewer. Performance Considerations Rendering multiple cards at once can be taxing on the system, so please don't try invoking the preview window on too many items. A couple hundred or so should still be fine in most cases. Reviewing Cards in Advance Advanced Previewer offers an option to review cards before their due date. This is disabled by default, but can be enabled through the options menu. When reviewing cards in advance, please be mindful of the following: CREDITS AND LICENSE Advanced Previewer is Copyright © 2016-2017 Aristotelis P.

It's gamechanger. I mostly want to follow Anki's algorithm. I never liked that I had to. This add-on gives me control and flexibility.

Brilliant add-on.
It is essential for me to be in a position to freely choose a card to remember.
Big thanks!
on 1528916829
Wowww!!! With this addon the Anki becomes much more powerful!
on 1528588800
Works great, thank you.
on 1525996800
Thank you

Is there a way to add custom buttons to add/remove/edit tags directly from the previewer? For example a button that, when clicked, marks the card?
on 1522540800
This is awesome, to study a set of cloze (overlapping) cards in sequence, for example when you need to learn something super fast

This add-on is great. Thanks for all your work glutanimate! I will echo the suggestion that someone else has already mentioned - having an option to turn on the ability to directly edit cards from the previewer would be awesome. I like to use pre-made deck so being able to read through the cards en masse and make edits on the fly would save a ton of time when making my first pass through the cards.

Your add-on is a life-saver!
on 1497916800
great but some tips

it would be great to have addon which can directly edit card while studying or in preview mode. any one have any idea
on 1484956800

This addon is awesome!
Issue: It doesn't show cards properly when using cloze in multiple fields
on 1482537600
Very cool!

I leave my suggestion, it would be interesting to create an intuitive add-on to delete repeated cards not only from a deck but that is related to all it for example to those who made dowloads of several decks of the same language and have several cards repeated in them

I love this add-on. Multiple cards preview is great!
