It's a working prototype. I'm not very familiar with Anki's codebase and how Anki works under-the-hood, but after a bit of testing the add-on seems to be working fine for me, but there might be some minor bugs that were left undetected or maybe the add-on doesn't play well with some other add-ons. Any bug reports or suggestions will be appreciated but at the moment I probably won't be interested to spend time to update and improve the add-on. The add-on can be used to perform multiple similar searches at once, for example, by searching for cards in Anki using a list of words or some text as input. In theory, it should produce similar results when searching for cards in Anki manually one by one or at once using OR syntax - https://docs.ankiweb.net/searching.html. As a possible alternative, it seems Morphman has the Mass Tagger function to 'tag all cards that contain morphemes from db' (a list of words). The add-on is accessible from the search box's context menu. The input can be a list of words or phrases (to search by lines) or some sentence or text (to search by words). The search results can be filtered by field or by search. The search filter will be empty or contain the same text that was in the browser. After pressing Ctrl+Enter or clicking OK, the add-on will perform multiple searches and the browser window will be modified a bit. There will be a new column (Search) and two arrow buttons. The last input (except for the search filter) will be remembered. The browser will contain all searches with at least one result. To view each result separately, use the arrow buttons. The same note might appear more than once in the browser if it was found by different searches. It looks like any modifications to one of these notes will be noticed by Anki and updated appropriately. The Search column and two arrow buttons will be hidden after searching for something else in the browser. Nickolay Nonard <kelciour@gmail.com>
