It'll be awesome if it can have shortcuts to flag the card for the right hand using the same option answer key like Command+H(1), Command+J(2), etc.
But it's also useful to have an additional shortcut. I added this to the todo list, see https://github.com/ijgnd/anki__jkl_answer_keys_configurable/issues/3 But this will probably take a longer time.
I'd like each hand to have their own set of custom shortcuts (ASDF and HJKL). I looked at __init.py__ but it turns out I don't know enough python to make the change myself.
yes. But don't just take my word on it. Verify it for yourself: Add-ons that affect the scheduling (like this one) can do a lot of harm if they don't work as they are supposed to. So it's always a good idea to check yourself if it works as advertised when you start using the add-on. You can check how Anki registered the answer in the Info dialog for a card in the card browser. That's quite cumbersome. It's quicker with add-ons like "Extended Card Stats During Review", https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1008566916, that basically shows the contents of the "info dialog" for the current card and the last card in a sidebar: After rating a card the reviewer will show you the next card. So the card you just rated is the "last card". Check the most recent rating value for the last card. "Answer Confirmation for 2.1", https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1354051622, should also show you how Anki registered your rating.
EDIT: It works!! Thanks a ton. (I can can now study comfortably when my cat insists on sitting on my lap haha. And will give my space bar a break.)
I'm using JKL; as answers. For some reason, ; (semicolon) does not register – but : (colon i.e. Shift+;) does. I'm on macOS Mojave and Anki 2.1.15.
Would be great if you could add an option for undo.
Also, perhaps of interest for those working with many languages: if you duplicate the addon folder and call it something else, you can easily assign further shortcuts. For instance, I use Ancient Greek κ and λ for the same purpose as k and l in English.
I don't have a Mac so unfortunately I can't investigate this semicolon problem.
To remap the undo shortcut you can use the very popular "Customize Keyboard Shortcuts" add-on - in this add-on it's the setting "m_toolbox undo".
