Cloze Overlapper

0.03MB. Updated 2017-03-08. Only supports Anki 2.0.
The author has shared 65 other item(s).


     Facilitates memorizing enumerations, lists, or any other type of sequential information by breaking the sequence up into cards where each item serves as the context cue for the next: COMPATIBILITY The version on AnkiWeb only works with Anki 2.0 now. A test version for Anki 2.1 is available on my Patreon page. BACKGROUND Memorizing lists and enumerations has always been a particularly difficult part of studying flashcards. Good flashcards follow the minimum information principle, where each card is kept as short as possible. Sequential information has unfortunately always somewhat eluded that basic principle because it is hard to break down into smaller chunks. Normally you would employ methods like grouping or categorizing to consolidate information, but with each item building upon the next, that does usually not work for sequences or enumerations. One of the common recommendations in cases like this has always been to create overlapping flashcards, where each card's answer serves as the question prompt for next card in line. For an array of three list items A, B, C you would end up with three cards of the form A → B, B → C, and C → D. What results is chain of overlapping associations between each sequence node that can potentially improve the storage and retrieval strength of the entire sequence. While this method is generally assumed to be quite effective, following it requires a significant time investment up-front that only few students are able or willing to make. THE ADD-ON This is where Cloze Overlapper comes in. It takes care of all the arduous steps required to create these flashcards manually and provides you with a dead-simple workflow: You paste in the sequence or list, adjust the cloze generation settings, and let the add-on generate the cards for you. More generally speaking, Cloze Overlaper provides Anki with a completely novel cloze system that can cover almost every use case you can think of, be it revealing each taxon of a classification system individually, or even gradually building up to an entire poem: Due to working with the formatting tools that Anki provides itself, the cards generated by this add-on are fully compatible with all Anki platforms, smartphone apps included: VIDEO DEMONSTRATION RELEASE LOG This section will always be updated with the latest changes to Cloze Overlapper.

Used to be a great addon but development and updates have stopped even for the paywalled version on patreon. None of them work on recent Anki versions.
on 1677009059
There's a free alternative that actually works. Spend 10 minutes, and you'll get what you want.
on 1676849697
A working version is supposedly behind a paywall.

While waiting for an official release, you can try a pure JavaScript template that does the same and simpler, and works on mobile, too – https://gist.github.com/michalrus/fe16637f6bdc329ba35f635a4b4994bc

Now available for Anki 2.1 here : https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/109531687
Thank you!
Comment from author before post was edited
It is available for 2.1, but in testing. Good things take time. To get access to it, either build it yourself (https://github.com/glutanimate/cloze-overlapper/releases/tag/v0.4.0-alpha.0), or join the early access program on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/glutanimate/posts?tag=Cloze%20Overlapper).

But even if it was 2.0 only, it's incredibly unkind and ungrateful of you to downvote an add-on due to lack of 2.1 compatibility. Add-on authors are under no obligation to spend their free time developing add-ons for you. And as the add-on description above does not advertise 2.1 support in any fashion and the add-on is not listed on the page of 2.1 add-ons (https://ankiweb.net/shared/addons/2.1), your rating is completely uncalled for. Downvoting these "essential" add-ons as you say is a great way to discourage add-on devs from ever producing them and making them freely available to you.
on 1624805326
1. paywall ...
2. cloze cards are all over the place while reviewing. In the examples it looks like they gonna be opened in sync
on 1620684312
Easy to use. Just copy and paste a list.
on 1620409918
Still behind a subscription pay wall.
on 1619373796
I can't get the ad-ons.
on 1617706066
If somebody could be so gracious to let me know how to make a cloze, ordered, vanishing list manually I'd appreciate it. Idm if it takes 15 minutes I just want to make one list and then my work is done.
on 1616863349
subscription based pay-wall, please make it a one time purchase
on 1616517045
The default Anki need something like this open sourced.
on 1616048765
Make it a 1-time purchase!!!!!
on 1616006458
Love it. Had some little problems back then, but now it just works. Couldn't imagine Anki without it.
Thanks man.

Edit: Works for me with Anki 2.1.42 with a little workaround (https://www.reddit.com/r/Anki/comments/jlj1yy/fixing_cloze_overlapper_for_2128/)
on 1610122639
This is a very much big thank you. You help people to change their lives with this, and so I'm very thankful for you. Thanks for teaching us how to build the binary, and giving the tools for it
on 1609748036
Make it a one time purchased and I'll buy it!
on 1607880299
pricey subscription based add-on, make it one time payment for a reasonable price and I'll pay for that
on 1607409074
Paid for nothing on Patreon.. just to get my Anki bricked
on 1606019092
It seems like there is a lot of confusion on whether or not it's possible to get this add-on working.
If you pay $5 for one month of Patreon you can download the "alpha" version of the add-on which does not work for Anki 2.1.35 but it does work fine for Anki 2.1.26! (Which is a previous and still accessible version of Anki)

I had originally updated to 2.1.35 but downgraded to 2.1.26 to use this add-on and have not had any problems - and I have made and reviewed 150 cards with the add-on so far.

To download Anki, 2.1.26 in order to downgrade, use this link https://apps.ankiweb.net/#download
Before changing to 2.1.26 go to File>Switch Profile menu item, and click on “Downgrade & Quit” - explained here: https://changes.ankiweb.net/
These instructions are also on Glutanimate's page when you download the add-on on the Patreon.

I have found this add-on to be extremely helpful in making cards, and it has really changed the way I make Anki cards in a positive way. I absolutely think it was worth the small fee. Hope this clears up some of the confusion here
on 1605906252
Did pay for one month of patreon only to get access to this and it's totally broken.

Doing anything with the plugin, even opening the overlapping cloze card type and trying to save it, throws an anki error, it's unusable.

The last update is from last February so it looks like it has been dead for 10 months, and he's been working in a lot of other plugins meanwhile (which I'm sure are very nice, but they are of zero interest to me).

I can only assume this plugin is just an abandoned, broken beta, in which case why are you charging for it.
on 1605462349
It should be specified that the patreon has not been updated for a long time. The addon was very good, but it does not have the due attention of the dev.
on 1604699166
ain't free... but says it is.
on 1603969140
If it's not free, don't say it is.
on 1603763168
Previously great. No longer supported. No commits to repository in over a year.
on 1603598728
on 1603323006
For ppl confused about Patreon. You can pay for 1 month and then cancel. So he is really asking $5 for the add-on, not too much to ask for.
on 1603068439
AWESOME add on! Glutanimate is a rockstar for creating this. Learning enumerations is such huge part of learning anything, and this add on is so so so good at tackling this problem

Some tips for those trying to build this...
1. use a mac or linux. windows did not work for me
2. you have to use pip to install aab AND pyqt5
3. when you clone the repo, use the master branch. the tags are not building
4. install it on Anki 2.1.22. It also works on 2.1.26, but throws a minor error when adding a cloze with just 1 line. it doesn't work on Anki 2.1.35
on 1603037180
Deep respects to Glutanimate - nothing against him.

Add on was really great in 2.0. And I am willing to pay some amount to this addon even if you broadcast it as 'pay only add on' instead of 'test version available to patrons' - a test that never ends.

The problem I find is: given that I am from India - that $60 per year on Patreon comes out to be an effective $250 considering our purchase parity rates (meaning since the costs are less in India we earn less for the same work). There should have been an easier way.

I agree with all the points regarding a coder needing food on table. In that case - openly declaring it as 'paid only' add on would remove the expectations from people. And hopefully somebody else who is competent enough will try to write a FREE version of it.
on 1602791244
I hope the testing will be complete soon so it can be available to public. Nevertheless thank you so much for your effort and contribution. You, Damien and others really improved out lives
on 1602488995
I'm sure the Add-On is really awesome and I really wouldn't mind pledging for it... but 5€ per month is very pricey for a student :/ maybe you can consider to lower the subscription cost? I'm sure more people would subscribe then!
on 1602300984
I can't use pay in China
Is there any other way to get the new version
on 1602239989
Great. I use it to study veterinary medicine.
on 1601978357
Either I don't understand Patreon very well, or the add-on really is a litte pricey. I wouldn't mind at all to pay $5 dollars for it, but according to Patreon, that is what I would have to pay every month, meaning 60$/year or more than a hundred in two years. That does seem quite a lot... or am I missing something here?

Nice add-on. Works as described. Very excited for when it comes to 2.1!
on 1597526602
Super addon, thank you glutamate - I've no idea how I'd have passed farmacology exam without cloze overlapper, I subscribed to your patreon just to give you some money as a thank you.
on 1597196042
The comment about the author being selfish for charging $5 has me a bit worked up. If this were a visa commercial it would go something like, "A med student's life: Starbucks $5, Snacks for study group $13, fee on your student account nobody really knows what it's for $67, tuition for TODAY's lectures that you're going to skip $83, random textbook you're never going to open $186, graduation debt $150 000, study tool for anki that you will use literally everyday $5. WFT???!?! Why is this $5??? You're so selfish!" Don't be a 7/21/2020, donate and be grateful he/she decided to work on this while you're sorry behind was still struggling on your OChem homework.
on 1596484573
Great addon, love that it works on mobile aswell. This kind of seamless compatibility is what I look for in addons and Im glad to pay for it as this is literally saving me study time, simply due to increase in efficiency.
on 1595989040
Ignore the haters below, Glutanimate. Those who demand your work for free are the selfish ones. Much love and respect!
Comment from author
Thank you! Really appreciate the kind words of support!
on 1595395306
Yeah yeah, we know you have good add ons. But to be really profiting from it? Srsly? We just need the 2.1 bro, salute u with your contributions but damn bro ur selfish.
Comment from author
The add-on is still freely available to download for Anki 2.0. There is nothing preventing you from installing 2.0 and using Cloze Overlapper on it. Nothing about that has changed. If you need to get access to the test release for 2.1, you can either build the add-on yourself (the source code is freely available: https://github.com/Glutanimate/cloze-overlapper), or pledge $5 on Patreon. Contrary to popular belief, developers do need a roof over their heads and food on their table. We're not robots. Anki itself is kept afloat by AnkiMobile, which is a paid-for app. I assume you also expect to be paid for your work, don't you? Then where's your justification for a comment like this?

If you think that $5 is too much to ask for, given 60+ freely shared open-source add-ons, numerous contributions to Anki itself and its ecosystem, then I'm sorry, but I can't help you.
on 1595006401
But we neeed it for 2.1
I study biothechnology where there is no crédit card {3rd world} how i supposed to get this addon now aaaaaa
Comment from author
Hi there, I'm sorry to hear that accessing the add-on is difficult form where you're located. Unfortunately this a difficult problem to tackle, and I'm sure this is something Anki itself is also facing, given that AnkiMobile is also paid for and only available via the app store (which also requires a credit card or paypal from my knowledge).

For Cloze Overlapper there are a few alternative solutions that might be worth exploring:

1. You could read up on how to build Anki add-ons and build Cloze Overlapper for Anki 2.1 yourself. The source code and instructions are available here: https://github.com/glutanimate/cloze-overlapper
2. You could install Anki 2.0 in parallel and use that to create your overlapping cloze cards. If you install Anki 2.1.23 next to 2.0, you will be able to use the same collection across both versions of Anki. So to create your flashcards you could quickly switch to 2.0, and then switch back to 2.1 to review them / sync to AnkiWeb. Please note however that this won't work as well for newer Anki 2.1 releases as they use an updated database. For newer releases what you could do is use a different profile for Anki 2.0, create your flashcards there, and then export them as an apkg file. You could then import the apkg file into a newer Anki release.

I understand that this workflow is more complex, but I think it's a viable alternative until the 2.1 version of Cloze Overlapper is ready and freely available to everyone.

Hope that helps!

Hi there. A test version for Anki 2.1 is available on my Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/glutanimate?filters[tag]=Cloze%20Overlapper

The page you left your rating on is not listed in the add-on list for Anki 2.1, and only accessible if you specifically google for it, so I'm having trouble understanding your rating. 2.1 support is not advertised anywhere on this page, it explicitly says "Only supports Anki 2.0.x" at the top. Add-on authors are under no obligation to provide you with a 2.1 version of their add-on. To go around downvoting old 2.0 pages just for the sake of it is super unkind and ungrateful towards all the work put into these projects that were freely shared with the community. Thank you.

This is one of my 2 main card types. Indispensable.
Now that 2.0 is no longer supported where can I buy the 2.1 beta version of this tool.
I couldn't figure out on Patreon what level was required to obtain the cloze overlapper.
I'd spend $10.00 happily. I would spend $20.00 unhappily, but I would still buy it today if it worked.
on 1587782971
Very versatile and useful add-on for lists!
on 1585822439
Killer addon. Thanks so much!
The only thing than took me a bit to figure out was how to display pasted images. In case somoeone else is wondering, you simply have to press ctrl+shift+x, copy the html of the image (something like '<img src="paste-9e1074e7089aba83897761f107583f13f0c25c4f.jpg">') and paste it as it is, in the list. Maybe it's trivial, but perhaps it can help someone.

Thank you!
on 1585583078
This is very good! I wonder if there is a way to update notes in bulk. If I edit lots of cards on AnkiDroid it is not always easy, nor handy, to find each note I edited and click on the "generate cards" button

i have been using your various add-ons, love them. I have an idea for a new project, that may make anki even more powerful than before, I hope you can apply your skill to this task. can you create a bridge between the media import addon and image occlusion, here is why. I primariliy use image occulsion to study, but it can become time consuming because i use it for every slide on a given lecture, so having 3 lectures per day results in 80 slides per lecture, results in too much time making cards. media import is great because it allow you to import you lecture fast but it does not allow for the use of image occulsion , so frustrating, do you think you can take on this challenge? waiting for 2.1 overlapper, i am checking regularly

Looking forward to 2.1

Really good add-on but is severely outdated! We need the 2.1 update.
on 1540570231
When will it be available also for Anki 2.1?
on 1539855956
Brilliant, works well. Helpful youtube tutorial as well.
on 1539853738
Useful! Thanx!
on 1539253141
Essential Add-on for me.
on 1539251718
I did not think that Anki could be even more powerful than it is allready. This add-on proved me wrong. Also try the Image Oclusion Enhanced from the same developer. Highly recomended!
on 1538934371
Desperately need this for 2.1
on 1537632251
This is such a great addition to the normal Cloze functionality. As with others, just waiting for it to be available for 2.1!
on 1537556761
An essential addon for me. I am really looking forward to the 2.1 port! Please keep up the amazing work!

Firstly have a meal on me.
Amazing job with all the Add-ons.

Please reconsider adding typing support for this Add-on. It would simply be awesome.

I have no idea if it would be possible but I know of one Add-on that allows more than one type field per card, called "Multiple type fields on card"
Comment from author
That was very generous of you, thank you! I really appreciate the continued support! :)

Typing is definitely something I'd like to look into again. That add-on is a good start, but the implementation is a bit too hacky and unstable for my taste (it overwrites quite a few private methods in Anki's code). Ideally I'd like to find something that works across all platforms. Perhaps this will be easier to implement on Anki 2.1. No guarantees, though!

I'd love this to be updated to work with Anki 2.1, because this is one of my "must have" add-ons!

Thanks for the rating! Glad you're enjoying the add-on. I'm working on the 2.1 port as we speak.

Useful add on for the biosciences (pathways, post-receptor activation steps...)

Nice ADD!

Save a lot of my time. Thanks.
on 1532859646
It is well thought-out, well implemented, and phenomenally brilliant, really. It is utterly transforming my ability to work with lists of things I need to memorize, as well as writing (poems, songs, verses, etc.) I need to memorize. It's incredible.

Thank you, awesome addon. I would like to use it more, unfortunately, for me, I can't use it togheter with Emacs package Anki-Editor. I would like to add cards that use: [[oc::text]], however, in Emac's Org-Mode the "[[ ]]" implements a hyperlink, so I can't export the notes correctly. Is there any way to change the syntax from [[oc::text]] to something like {{oc::text}}?

Has been great for medical school. Study for step 1 right now and has been enormously helpful in learning lists.

One nit-picky thing is I wish the font size in the browser could be put back to the default/original size for this add-on. I index my cards and sort them by their index id, so when I'm scrolling through a deck in the browser looking for a specific topic to syudy, the fonts get big and small because this addon has a larger font. Makes it a little harder to quickly find a topic by eye. Currently looking for a way to change the font size in the browser so everything is the same size
Comment from author
Hi! Thanks for the feedback! Glad you've been enjoying the add-on.

For what it's worth, the add-on's card template actually uses the default font size for the browser appearance. You can check this by creating a new Anki profile and adding some basic cards and overlapping clozes, and then comparing how they appear in the browser.

If you are using a shared Step 1 deck like Zanki or Bros then they are more than likely equipped with custom card templates that render slightly differently in the browser. In order to apply the same font formatting to the Cloze Overlapper template you can do the following: Find a card with a smaller font size in the browser, click on "Cards" in the editor section, then click on "More" at the bottom of the card template editor. You should be able to select "Browser appearance" or something similar. Click on that and a dialog with a font selection menu should come up. Remember what font and font size is set there. Then repeat the previous steps for the Cloze Overlapper note type right up to the point where the dialog comes up. Set the font values you remember from the other note type, then confirm with OK to apply the changes.

N.B.: It might look like Cloze Overlapper and the other note types are using the same values (Arial 12), but that is actually not the case. By default, the font values of card templates in Anki are unset. I.e.: It might say Arial 12, but Anki actually uses the system-wide font settings to determine the card's appearance in the browser. It's only after clicking "OK" in the font settings dialog that the options shown there are actually applied. There is also no easy way to undo this change with Anki 2.0, so be careful with that. Once you set the font settings for one card template you will have to do it for every single one to reach the same level of consistency as before.

super useful

Funny, it never once occurred to me that this would not solve my problem of having to type in four answers for a 4-cloze note. If spelling is important (not doctor?), and we're just supposed to analog write on paper in front of the computer, we have to write the previous item prompt and the item we're remembering.
I spent the afternoon on the videos, installed, made some cards, and only then was directed to a thread where it's explained that only one "type"-field per card is allowed. We know that. That's what we wanted this for -- to split clozes into multiple cards to avoid that limitation.
If this is creating separate cards for each line of a list, why can there not be one "type"-field per card, so we can type in the answer?
Comment from author before post was edited
Sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the add-on. However, there's a reason why typing support is not advertised anywhere within the add-on description, numerous wiki entries, nor tutorial videos: Anki does not support multiple typing fields on the same card, thus Cloze Overlapper doesn't either (https://github.com/glutanimate/cloze-overlapper/issues/1). It begs the question then why you would rate the add-on for what it can't be, instead of rating it for what it is.

Zum Lernen langer Listen einfach klasse. Bspw. Arterien / Venen und Nerven oder Komplikationslisten und Differentialdiagnosen. Gute gemacht!

Another plug-in from glutanimate that is totally awesome. Even though it's pretty straightforward, the variations are many. Perfect tool for creating pathways, like in neuroscience and biochemistry, and learning complex related topics.
on 1525046400
Thank you soo much for this addon. We need more people like you (programmers) that can help more people like me (non programmers). I've been looking for something like that for my learning Cantonese. You've made my day! ;)

Some bugs

Hello there ! thanks for your awesome add... please if you can fix some bugs... whenever i add a list row that contain some colored words and then i add the overlapping [o]] and add the note to find that this sentence which contained the colored word has split into 2 sentences.. please fix it . thanks :)
on 1493510400
Just perfect

Such a useful addon to help users to memorize lists, paragraphs, poems and so on. Excellent job!
on 1493510400
Very useful addon

This addon is great for making cards for memorising lists. Would reccommend people to watch the authors videos on youtube to learn about all the features.

Out of the 10+ add-ons I have, this is definitely in my top 3. I have struggled with putting metabolic pathways (Endocrinology class, yep), lists, sonnets onto Anki because of the lack of clues and connection-building -- but this is a godsend. Out of the myriad of add-ons I have, this is definitely in my top 3 most valuable for studying. Get it now!! Also, the "Remarks" field is great.
