For 2.1 there is a new add-on that offers the same functions named "Opening the same window multiple time" at https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/354407385
You would save my life if you ported this to 2.1 Anki
Thank you ever so much for this! A truly awesome and incredibly useful addon!
I've always felt rather limited by Anki's restriction to one window per dialog type, so this add-on has been a very welcome addition to my workflow. Thank you!
A few issues I've noticed:
- in its current state, the add-on is incompatible with the 'Quick note and deck buttons' add-on as it relies on the model change hooks the Multiple Windows add-on removes
- when performing a modification that induces a database scheme modification, e.g. checking the database or changing the note type in the browser, the AddCards window will stop working. Once again this is due to the removal of the reset hooks which are required to update the Editor instance with the new collection.
- despite the removal of the reset hooks, note type changes will still get propagated to other windows after adding a note sometimes
I love this functionality. Works like a charm
Thanks very much. I cannot believe this works but it actually does… Very useful for anyone learning several languages at the same, for learning lexical fields in one language, etc.
