Anki Re-Update

August 31, 2010

I promised I would do this, so here it is. I’ve updated my anki (aesthetically and in terms of how I use it). I changed my mind about showing the story on the front. I think you should see the keyword, then if you can’t make the connection, view the story as a hint. So that’s exactly what I did.

Here you can see the format. Here’s how you do it:

Go to Settings>Deck Properties and click on your deck, then push edit.

Under Fields, you will see three Fields. You will need to rename your fields. Here is how mine is set up:

Field 1: Kanji
Field 2: Keyword
Field 3: Story

I suggest putting them in that same order as I did (use Move  Up and Move Down to change the order).

Then, in card templates, copy paste this:



<font face=”Arial” size=2><a href=”#” onclick=”document.getElementById(‘hint’).style.display=’block’;return false;”>Show Hint</a></font><div id=”hint” style=”display: none”>%(Story)s</div>



NOTE: Your fields must be named the same way I showed above for that to work!

Tada! You have the same show hint button as I do.

Finally, you can edit the colors and fonts of your Anki in the Settings>Fonts and Colors menu.
