Global CSS

is there some way in Anki to make a global CSS to apply to all your note types? I have six types, using the same CSS for all of them, but having to copy/paste the sheet between decks is a bit inconvenient.

    There's no user-defined global CSS as far as I know, but you could use an external CSS file to manage all decks. To do this you just have to paste your CSS into a file in your Anki media directory, name it with a leading underscore so that it doesn't get deleted, and then import it on all relevant templates via the following line in your style fields:

    @import url("_stylesheet.css");

    Hi bkhl,

    This is not currently possible, but it's something we're considering for future versions.

    I'm now using Glutanimate's solution, which is convenient enough for my six decks, and works when syncing to AnkiDroid too.
