Pass/Fail 2: Remove the "Easy" and "Hard" buttons

<10kB. Updated 2023-01-24.


Supports all versions of Anki 2.1. An addon for Anki that removes the wide spectrum of “Again”, “Easy”, “Good”, “Hard” buttons from your Anki reviews, instead choosing to offer you only two options: “Fail” and “Pass”, setting keybinds to Fail:1, Pass:2/3/4. The goal of this addon is twofold:
  1. The wide spectrum of buttons introduces decision paralysis when reviewing. This is undesirable as when reviewing you should be thinking more about what you’re reviewing than what button to press.
  2. The “Hard” button in Anki has an effect the opposite of what you would desire – when you find something difficult, it increases the amount of time before you review it again, giving you more time to forget it. Pass/Fail 2 counters this design by simply removing the Hard button in the first place.
Intended to be used with settings from "Low-Key" Low-Key Anki, but can also be used without.

This doesn't work for mobile anki - is there a way to make it so that it does?

great idea but, you cannot activate this addon for specific decks, you have to do it for all decks or nothing

This is a really nice, simple add-on, been using it for years :) After its most recent update though, I started getting an error message anytime I would click "show answer". I think the value of 44 could be wrong in the lines that check for point_version; lines 38 and 93? I changed it to 45 and now it works fine. I have Anki 2.1.44.

Really nice addon, just remember to link to https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/819023663 for the "Low-Key" Low-Key Anki settings.

I don't see any issues so far :) I wish I could find the "no penalties" addon to complete my lowkey anki setup :(
