Commonly used windows in Anki remember the size you gave them. Which windows are you having trouble with that are not keeping their size?
I appreciate it can be troublesome to become familiar with new versions, but I'm afraid it is not practical to keep supporting old versions indefinitely. You are welcome to continue using Anki 2.0 after the cutoff date, but after that date you will either need to use Anki 2.1 for syncing, or manually copy your data to your other devices.
You have so much backlash against the upgrade, why not listen to the community...2.1 has too many bugs that haven't been fixed in the last year; windows are way too slow, scrolling is slow, there are random bugs that make the screen spaz out, and a lot of the great add-ons for Anki aren't built yet for 2.1 (or will ever be).
Dear Damian, I understand you want to push for the newer versions of Anki.
I used Anki 2.1 for a whole year and I liked it. In fact, I liked it a lot! However, I then found out about essential add-ons such as Close overlapper and Heatmap that were missing from 2.1. Hence, I switched to 2.0 and now I have become HEAVILY dependent on Anki for my studies. Without these add-ons, I'd be lost!
I have no issue with switching to 2.1 as I actually PREFER the interface of 2.1 on my Mac. The big issue stopping me from reverting back to 2.1 is that these add-ons are not ready for 2.1 yet. I request that you wait till these add-ons are ready please :)
Arjun: I believe Glutanimate provides 2.1 versions of both of those add-ons to people who contribute to his fundraising page.
abcderek: I appreciate that the newer toolkit Anki uses can be slower - particularly on Windows - but I'm afraid the older toolkit was deprecated years ago now, so it is not receiving any security fixes, and it does not support modern encryption standards. If you're on Windows, you can speed things up somewhat by adding an exception for Anki in Windows Defender.
Can you at least FIX some of the glaring problems with 2.1...for instance, when I try to edit a card there's literally a 2 second delay before the card content shows. The toolkit is extremely slow, even on Mac...

Hello, I've just updated from 2.0 to 2.1.15 and it continuously shows the following message: “Error establishing a secure connection. This is usually caused by antivirus, firewall or VPN software, or problems with your ISP.”
The problem is that Anki 2.1.15 is not able to synchronize. Before, with Anki 2.0 I had no problems at all. As a result, after years of using Anki, I will have to stop using it because of the new version error.
Is there anything I could do to solve this setback? Anki is essential for me.
My operating system is Windows.
KEEP: I'm not seeing such delays here - see attached. If you have an older machine some slowdown is to be expected, but you may also want to try disabling add-ons or testing in a fresh profile to rule out add-ons and your deck/tag count as the cause.
My kids and I have older Macs and we don't see these slowdowns with 2.1. My son and I prefer the newer looks in 2.1. My daughter didn't even notice the change. I have about 1,500 cards split between pasted large images and latex/svg. I definitely appreciate the extra work it takes to maintain two apps. I also prefer the experimental scheduler. All too often I want to review cards without messing with the scheduling info. Bravo to 2.1
