Reset Ease

This add-on allows you to reset the ease of all your cards to 250%. It may be useful if you are in ease hell as described in this video. This code was originally shared on this website and is not my work. I simply formatted it for 2.1 and am sharing it here for ease of download. As I do not have any coding skills, this add-on is shared as is and I will not be able to provide support. To use this, go to Tools->Reset Ease and note that it will reset the ease of ALL cards in your collection to 250%. If you only want some of them reset, I'd recommend you export those cards with scheduling and import them into a new profile and then export them back to your main profile.

Please remember that we are not coders and thus may not be able to provide support. Changelog 2019-11-14: Initial Release. If you still prefer this original version, you can download it from github here 2020-06-23: Added dialog that allows you to select which deck is reset and what % the ease is reset to. Thanks to noobj2 for the pull request! 2020-09-22: Updated so that it only resets ease of cards that have been reviewed and it should now sync better. Thanks to Aleksa Sarai for the pull request! 2020-12-27: Now allows resetting ease of only cards with different ease %s (selectable in the dialog). Updated and cleaner dialog.

This is an awesome add-on. I kept looking for something that could reset ease factor for individual cards so thank you!

I feel that I learned Japanese vocabulary faster when using this

Thank you very much for this. Really needed it

Works great; I like the ability to specify which cards it's going to reset based on their current ease.

I have been living in ease-literal-hell for the last 6 months. Even thought about abandoning it. And then I found your video. I can't thank you enough. I didn't even know I was doing something wrong. Thank you!

Should be implemented in Anki
Must have add-on

Works perfectly! I really liked being able to choose the threshold ease for when to reset a card.

I have used this add-on literally every day for years, but recent updates have made it worse. It used to be a single click to reset the ease, then it went to 3 clicks because confirmation was added, and now it's several clicks plus two drop down menus, one of which requires a selection of "greater than" or "less than"; eventually the user is going to slip up and select the wrong one and reset every ease that's high instead of every ease that's too low. Like I said, I use this add-on every day and it pains me to write this, my first-ever review of an Anki plug-in. I recommend that you bring back the one-click reset of the ease by pushing all the menus and confirmations and percentages in the back-end by having a settings page for the add-on. That way the user can select what they want once and have it set forever, instead of selecting the same thing every single day. Thank you very much.

I'm sorry to hear this. I didn't know that users were using this every day. I uploaded the original version to github releases under a different folder name so you can use it instead. Does this work? If so, I'd appreciate if you switched this to a like.

Perfect. I often use "easy" or "hard" to make short term adjustments, but I don't like to change the ease for long term, so I reset it periodically with this addon.

I needed this addon to get out of ease hell. And to not get into ease hell again I installed auto ease factor addon

This is one of those add-ons or invention in a sense, that should be hailed savior.
on 1593577577
Works as intended, no complications with my many other add-ons installed. Definitely recommended if you are seeing too many once hard cards that are now easy and won't go away.

Thanks a ton. Saved me 100+ reviews today!
