But other browser related add-ons have caused problems for me in the past. If you have problems with your browser and suspect this add-on don't forget to disable other add-ons and restart to see if the problem persists.
e. g. "show only notes" option replaces https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/594622823
edit: even better than it: shows card 2 if there is no card 1!
Sadly there's a fly in the ointment. :(
Just found one flaw that with this add-on Undo doesn't work in Browser.
If you delete some cards in browser by mistake then you can't Undo and the cards will be gone for ever!
I tried several things and figured out that this add-on is a culprit!
I'm using Anki Version 2.0.52. and if you have some time please can you fix this bug? I'll appreciate that!
Thanks in advance!

I always wanted to know how much time I spend on certain cards such that I could spot cards that I should rewrite or delete.
With the help of this addon I can see e.g. the average and total time spent :) Thanks!
I had to remove all addons one by one till I found the culprit.
This is a must for everyone who wants useful feedback!
This is great and very helpful! However, it keeps crashing on me. Does not show any search results, I have to continually un-install and re-install until it starts working again. Any solutions?!?! Thanks!
The 1.5.3 version adds the ability to have a column for Previous Duration time. This allows teachers to give a timed math test with 20 problems
and see which problems the students took the most time on. It also allows the students to go into the browser and work on these problems that took more time to work. For classroom work this is awesome. Thank you so much for this added functionality.
Has been one of the first add-ons I download on any new Anki installation for years now. Thanks for the continuous support and development.
when i tried to sort it in jlpt field it shows me this error.. if you can fix it go ahead
It would be nice to have an ability to create custom date field to sort historical events (including CE and BCE).
Thanks for making this addon.
Greatly enhances the browser, much appreciated!
Thanks for creating this add on.
Now why you gotta keep taking my little scrolly bar thingy and movin' it all the way over there to the right side? I want my scrolly bar on the left side, and I want it to say there see? Seems every chance you get you take my scrolly bar and move it to the right and I've just about had it up to here with it! Why I oughta'... You leave my scrolly bar alone, see!
You just did it again! Here I was minding my business, repositioning a card, and then what do you know -- you went and moved my scrolly bar all the way to the right as soon as I had my back turned! That's a low blow, mister--a real low blow.
(Note: this could totally just be Anki's default behavior causing this rather than this addon, but it'd certainly be nice if the scroll bar didn't keep moving itself when performing various actions while the browser is open)
Vital but stops working
Thanks for the addon, it works as promised. Unfortunately I had to uninstall it cause my Anki started to crash randomly and quite often. It never happened before I installed the addon and doesn't happen now after I removed it. There is a bug somewhere but I couldn't reproduce it or catch a pattern when it crashes...
Phenomenal add-on, but it'd be nice if we'd get a down/continute arrow for other fields.
Thanks a million for this addon.
But there is a big problem:
I have several decks, and maybe 300 fields in total. But when I right-click on the "toolbar" (where there are the element you can chose to filter your notes), and select fields, a screen with all the filds listes alphabetically is displayed. BUT for me, this screen takes all my computer-screen, and I can't see the fields after "Kanki-conjugation". I can't navigate (with the arrow keys) through this screen either...
Let's see how I'm blocked with this picture :
Thank you for helping me :)
And doesn't take anything away. Programming at its best. Sorting by any field is a goldmine in itself.
This is extremely useful and simple to use, and fully addresses my two top frustrations with the Anki browser:
1. Can now add/remove columns, including the user-defined fields (use right mouse click). Sort all columns just by clicking header.
2. Can store custom filters in the filter sidebar at left
Nice work! Both these capabilities certainly should be added to the vanilla version on Anki.
After installing this add-on, you have to first manually add the "sortable" fields to the browser view, as the default fields are still non-sortable.
What more can I say. This add-on will make using Anki that much easier and more intuitive.
Thanks for the great work. This saved me SO much time and effort. I agree that the developers of Anki should definitely make this a core feature of the program - it's pretty unbelievable it's not already. *****
This addon helps the Card Browser function as a useful Note Browser as well. It seems well written (wouldn't crash for me) and include what should be a core Anki feature: the ability to sort on any arbitrary field. Thank you Houssam Salem!
