Lets you specify a hotkey for each note type, that you can use in note editor. (in Add Cards) Pressing the hotkey will switch editing note's note card to the specified. Modify add-on config before using it, or it won't work. (List of special key names: https://doc.qt.io/qtforpython/PySide2/QtGui/QKeySequence.html) This addon may not be compatible with other shortcut addons that override anki shortcut-making functions. You would have to ask their developers to update their addon. It is however compatible with 'Customize Keyboard Shortcuts'. If you get an error saving config, check that all lines of shortcuts has a comma at the end, and that the last line of the shortcuts does not have a comma at the end. And that each line is structured in the following way: "<some-hotkey>": "<some-note-name>", Also, you can't change note type in note editor other than in Add Cards, but the addon isn't smart enough to realize that so it shows that little popup that says the note type changed even when it didn't.

Works great! Remember to get rid of the < > in the " " when you enter the note-type-name. I didn't and was confused for a good 10 minutes why it wasn't working 😭

Thank you so much for making this! For some reason I can't seem to use the default Ctrl+N to change note type, so it was really nice to find this!

It would be perfect if this addon is compatible with anki-custom-shortcuts.

If you mean Customize Keyboard Shortcuts, that addon was updated recently to support new style hooks. Please update the addon and it should work now.
