Auto Cloze Hint - Show first letter of each word when mouse is on

<10kB. Updated 2021-03-20.


Auto Cloze Hint show first letter of each word when mouse is on. If you don’t want to see the hint, just move mouse away from Cloze area. Click "Contact Author" to report bug. Update: 2021/3/21 Change card.model()['name'][:5] == 'Cloze' to card.model()['type'] == 1 So even if your Note type name don't have "Cloze", this addon will work.

The idea is very good! Unfortunately, it does not work with the Type-in feature on Cloze cards

Great and elegant addon. I wish it worked for mobile apps too.

Update: this was not working originally but it is working now. Thank you!

This is not working for me. I've tried changing the cloze note types but nothing has worked so far. Looking forward to using this though!
