This add-on allows easy customization of the AnKing Note Types. You can download the note types with the add-on if they're not already in your collection and you can track changes for the note types on their GitHub page (NOTE: There is a Github page for the Note Types and a separate Github page for this add-on). This add-on currently only works on 2.1.36+ How to use this add-on and the note types: This video goes over how to use everything in the note types and the add-on. This is probably the best tutorial. If you prefer written instructions, use this README on GitHub. The config can be accessed via the menu AnKing->AnKing Note Types or in the note type editor there is a "Configure AnKing Note Types" button on the bottom left If you don't have the note types installed, you can install them via the add-on or you can install example notes on the Note Types Github releases page Images: Add-on: IO one by one note type: Cloze one by one feature (built in to most note types): Thank you Huge thank you to @BlueGreenMagick, @Kleinerpirat, @RisingOrange, u/Ankiphil, and u/holythesea who have helped significantly with the development of these notes over the last few years Problems, Bugs, Errors, Improvements If you find a serious bug with the add-on, please submit it on Github or email us at ankingmed@gmail.com.

Why doesn't the plugin install the Cloze one by one note type for me? It only installs IO Cloze, not Cloze ObO. I can't even get Cloze ObO in the github notes list.

If you haven't already noticed, I am very active in the community. Putting a dislike on this add-on does not notify me or give me a way to troubleshoot the issue with you.

We just pushed an update that will likely fix this problem thanks to a user that went through the proper route for reporting add-ons. Please do that in the future for any add-ons (not just mine)
