This add-on adds a few buttons to the right of the select note type button and the select deck button at the top of the add card dialog.

After downloading, you have to modify the

"name". This is the name of the model in the
model_buttonslist and the name of the deck in the
deck_buttonslist. Make sure that these names are correct. Cut-and-paste the names if possible.

This add-on was inspired by the “Quick change Note buttons” add-on. The code is based on that version, by Steve AW. Many thanks, for the code and also for the idea in the first place.
