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"
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!
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
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.
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?
Thank you very much. It is very useful to remember lists.
Just an awesome and very useful addon! Thanks for releasing it.
but if only it worked on anki mobile it would have been hilarious
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 :)
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.
Such a useful addon to help users to memorize lists, paragraphs, poems and so on. Excellent job!
One of the best addons.
Works as advertised.
