Ask a Question
It was rather painful to redo the tags for a huge deck, but it pays off. No more clutter in my side bar. If I would need to point out a flaw, it would be the fact that each hierarchy dependence is a tag of its own, so if you would like to have the same sub-tag in two categories of a higher rank, you need to ad two hierarchy tags to your card. There's no other way to assign a sub-tag to more categories.
What I'm trying to say is that when I wanted to have my deck of a few subjects grouped into multiple levels ordered according to their subject AND level, each card needed to have two tags: "level00::subjectA" and "subjectA::level00". This way I can look for cards of different subject on the same level, or all levels of cards in the same subject matter.
can I hide a main tag name in sub tags?
I mean, if i have A::B::C, than this hierarchy is shown at side bar like this.
but what i want for side bar tree is
Is there a way for me to do that?
also, I want this tag trees always be open, not hide sub tags. could it be possible?
by the way, Thank you for your awesome add-on!
best add-on for organization
It worked pretty well and I love the "replace" function. It would be even better if primary Tag could be hidden in the unfolded Subtag. For example "Tag1::SubTag1" showing only "SubTag1 under unfolded "Tag1", just like the navigation pane in the PC file explorer.
It's really good, except for one caveat, although that could just be a unique bug on my end. If there's more than 3 levels in a tag hierarchy, then clicking on the highest-level tags won't give any results, because instead of searching for "tag:myTag or tag:myTag::*" it'll just search for "tag:myTag" - the wildcard subtag search doesn't show up.
Thank you so much, I was about to write this kind of feature!
its works perfectly for me. good job !
Brilliant, thank you so much for this add on. Unfortunately I have the same problem when trying to rename tags, I'll file an issue on Github.
I loved this add on until I realized it wasn't compatible with night mode! :( Can you make it so that it's compatible?
Hierarchical tags work, you just have to restart Anki after installing the add-on. Haven't tested the other features. I chose to install this over the other version because this seems like it's being updated/maintained and has the source code on GitHub.
The customizable tag separator saves my day (emacs org -> anki)!
Very helpful in organizing cards.
FYI, I would like an option to expand/collapse all (keyboard shortcut?)
Seems the download is no longer downloadable. Kept getting a 404 error.
Any assistance would be appreciated!
This is either an error with ankiwebs servers, or you're trying to install it on Anki 2.0. This addon is only for Anki 2.1.
Works nicely. Highly recommend.
Does'nt work. Download failed : Error 404
It makes renaming tags much easier and faster.
However, whenever I rename a tag, I start getting this message (below) every time I click inside any field of a note in explorer.
I have to restart Anki to get rid of this message. With restarting, the message doesn't appear until I use the addon again!
Anki 2.1.5 Python 3.6.1 Qt 5.9.2 PyQt 5.9
Platform: Mac 10.14
Flags: frz=True ao=True sv=1
File "aqt/webview.py", line 121, in eventFilter
<class 'AttributeError'>: 'QContextMenuEvent' object has no attribute 'button'
Looked like a quirk of Anki's event handling. Fixed in the current version.
An improvement on the earlier port called "Hierarchical Tags Addon (2.0 => 2.1)", thank you.
