    Hello Damien,

    is it possible to slit up the string "Browse" appearing in/dtop/aqt/ and ../dtop/aqt/ into two separate strings/entries on Launchpad in order to translate them individually?

    Damien, I understand that JavaScript is something I do at my own risk, but isn't the expectation that it will work at least as it's worked in the pre-beta versions? Ie. that at least regressions will be looked at?

    Fin: it is necessary to allow users to copy & paste text.

    8f: Javascript is an advanced feature, and if you are using it you must be prepared to look into any issues that come up yourself.

    Hello Damien,

    Could you please enlarge the size of the card information window more so that user doesn't need to resize or scroll it every times?

    It remembers the sizing on my machine - is it not doing so for you?

    No, it doesn't do so on my device. It is always displayed with the "original" size.

    Hi there,

    im using latest beta (.41) unter windows 7 with the new sheduler.

    When I press any button, the attached error message appeared. I had to restart the application entirely and afterwards the card was marked as leech.

    I cannot reproduce it. Maybe you have an idea?

    Damien, thanks a lot!

    By the way, in Japan, "Anki" seems a buzzword on Twitter now.

    the beta 42 doesn't work properly in my Debian Stretch (9) virtual machine that uses the Mate Desktop Environment. This is not a problem for me because I don't use this for my regular reviews.

    If you are interested see the attached videos for details.

    • This is a very recent install. I have changed very little in this install.
    • Otherwise this install works as expected.
    • I run anki from my home folder.
    • Before I made this video I have removed my user data from ~/.local/share.
    • 2.0.52 works as expected.
    • Debian offers a slightly newer version of the Mate Desktop Environment (1.18) in the backports repo. I installed it and the problem with the beta 42 still persists. But I don't know if I made a mistake - maybe I have still some old packages affecting this additional test.

    I tried to start Anki with "$ QT_XCB_FORCE_SOFTWARE_OPENGL=1 bin/anki" but the Anki Window still loooks like in the previous video. Did I miss another option?

    I use one different pyqt5 software on this install which is calibre 3.27.1 which I got as a compiled version from This software runs as expected.

    This is a VM (the latest virtualbox 5.2.14 from the oracle repo for debian with guest additions 5.2.14) and not my main machine. it's not important for me. If you think that I can provide some useful info for you let me know.

    I'm guessing Calibre is shipping a different Qt version. Graphics corruption tends to be issues with the video drivers - I'm surprised that forcing software rendering didn't help in this case. I'm not sure what else can be done at the moment, but thanks for the heads up.

    AwesomeTT worked perfectly fine with 2.0 Version of Anki. After I updated it, it doesn't work anymore.

    please, make it possible to change bg color in new native nightmode. with all respects, the complete black is a bad design desicion both in desktop and in android app -- it just looks ugly (ask any artist/UI designer etc.) the only way to benifit from it is having amoled display.

    #272828 from night mode addon was so pleasing to eyes.


    upd: just noticed how old is this thread, sorry.
