This add-on replaces the top menu bar with the
Decks Study Add
Browse text buttons and the two rather drab sync and statistics
buttons with a colorful icon toolbar like the one in Anki 1.
The edit button and the more button in the bottom bar are also replaced by an icon tool bar.
This also adds a few more menu items and adds icons to the menus (not
on Macs). The tool bars can be shown and hidden via the “View” menu,
Decks Study Add Browse functions can also be reached
Two items are added only to the menus, not to the icon bars:
View menu, there is a
Mute switch. It works similar to the
Automatically play audio setting in the deck options (
tab). Audio on the card is not played when the card is shown, but only
when are pressed. This options works for all decks, and can
be switched on and off quickly.
Go menu contains a
Last card switch. When this is active,
rating an answer (clicking
Good &c.) goes back to the deck
The appearence can be changed by editing the add-on
by activating the
Tools/Add-ons/Colorful toolbars/Edit… menu
The file contains a switch to chage the add-on to netbook mode. When
netbook_version = True line is active the the two icon bars are
on the left and right, to
preserve vertical screen space. To get to my personal variant with
different buttons in the bottom bar, take a look at the git branch
to also get the
when you get the add-on from github.
There are also switches to show the
switches in the bottom icon bar.
UTSL for further changes to the icons shown.
The icons used are stored in the folder
Anki/addons/color_icons. They can be simply replaced by icons more to the
personal taste of the user.
