Remove Cloze Button and Hotkey

<10kB. Updated 2019-12-22. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.
The author has shared 62 other item(s).


   Adds a button and hotkey to the editor that allows you to remove clozes from any selected text. The hotkey is set to Ctrl+Shift+Alt+R by default, but can be customized through the config button under Tools → Add-ons. Extracted from Cloze Overlapper to bridge the gap until I find the the time to finalize the public 2.1 release. (Believe me, the button looks & works much nicer there with its proper icon, etc.) CREDITS AND LICENSE Copyright © 2016-2019 Aristotelis P.

Doesn't work with Version ⁨2.1.43 (0fbae6bc)⁩ Python 3.8.1 Qt 5.15.1 PyQt 5.15.1
Instead of removing Cloze it removes the whole field content.
I didn't find repository for this particular add-on on your github.

Even though it's true that the addon does not work with the latest versions of Anki, there's ONLY ONE possible rating: THUMBS UP — the addon is extremely useful!

Just an idea:
What would be extremely useful also (at least for me LOL), if one could select several cloze-cards in the Card-Browser and then REMOVE ALL HINTS; ie {{ANSWER::this part; after the colons}} …

I've gone overboard with cloze-hints in the past (thousands and thousands); now, I'd like to remove them all …

This add on makes my other add-on stop functioning. I needed to uninstall almost everything to check what add on was giving me that mistake. If you have this add on, maybe you should delete it. I hope this mistakes gets fixed soon.
