# TLDR - Anki 2.1.50 will have a built-in solution to duplicate/copy a note from the browser to an add window, see https://github.com/ankitects/anki/commit/cd22485f9b0ccde3abd5c7a3cca9f8cfe9e4d276 - You should adjust the shortcuts before you use the add-on. - Install the other add-ons this add-on depends on (see "# Requirements" below). - Use this at your own risk. # Functions This add-on allows you to copy the contents of the note of the current card to a new Add window when you press a shortcut. You can use this shortcut - in the Add Window, - in the window "Edit Current" (which you see if you press "e" during review), - in the Browser - during reviews In the Browser you can also use an entry in the menu or when you are in the upper half over the table you can use the context menu. # Motivation I regularly notice that some of my cards are too long even though I try to follow the Twenty rules of formulating knowledge. Then I want to split up the note. But if my note contains tags and fields like source, page, etc. this is tedious. Hopefully this add-on helps. I often notice that during review. I could press "e" to open up the underlying note in an Add-like window and then use the shortcut to copy the contents of this window. To make things faster I added a shortcut just for the reviewer that open both windows. # Alternatives You might not need this add-on: If you only work from the browser you can use the add-on Copy notes. You can open notes from the browser in a full window view with add-ons like External Note Editor for the Browser or my Browser Maximize/Hide Table/Editor. With these you wont' be able to switch the note type and won't have an Add button. # Requirements This add-on requires add-ons that allow multiple add windows: Opening the same window multiple time. For Anki versions 2.1.44 and older you also needed Keep model of add cards. # Bugs, Problems Bug fixes, improvements or feedback is welcome at my github repo. If you run into problems you can also notify me over there. If you leave a report as a review on this site I can't really answer well. # Other Authors: (c) 2018 Glutanimate (c) Ankitects Pty Ltd and contributors # Versions - 2021-12-11 update for 2.1.45+ - 2019-10-13 initial version

It is really useful when you want to memorize in a new way by modifying a little from the existing card.

Lovely. It is actually very effective for memory, as the author described (20 rules).
edit: One of my top add-ons regarding how often I use them.

Saves a ton of time. For those wondering, the default shortcut is Ctrl+0 on Windows and Command+0 on Mac.

Version before October 2019 had a bug where tags would not copy sometimes, and developer was very quick and helpful with a fix once reported in Github. Thanks a lot!

Could it be configured to just copy to add window from reviewer w/o opening the edit window as well?
