  1. Add musical scores

    Maybe you can add a way to add editable muscial scores or import them from Muse Score 2 (not as a picture).
    For example when you have the question "Where is C located?" you're able to draw the right answer in a musical score that will be verified (within Mnemosyne).

    • Features like Anki image occlusion 2.0

      It would be great if you were able to edit images and remove the description of some parts within Mnemosyne - that would be useful for anatomy flash cards.
      Here is an example that shows what I mean: https://youtu.be/X_y6wRH4EhI?t=3m26s

      • Draw answer / Taking handwritten notes

        It would be great if you were able to draw the answer with different colors within Mnemosyne. (Like it is possible by using external software like Epic Pen https://cloud.addictivetips.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Epic-Pen-Drawings.png). This would be useful for maths or chemistry.
        However, as soon as you move to the next cards your notes will be deleted.

        • Add the option to change the position of the 'Show answer' and 1-5 button

          One larger phones such as the S8+, the zero button is quite awkward to reach when using the phone one-handed. An option to move the buttons either to the bottom of the screen or the RH/LH edge of the screen (in a vertical layout) would make it much easier to reach.

          • add a tool for importing databases (MS Access and the like)

            I am missing a tool to help me import data from database sources, e.g. an .mdb (or similar) file. - Background: I have large collections of "cards" in MS Access (kind of a DIY "flashcards" database application). Of course, I could export this into a tab-separated .txt file and import it, but this would need various transformations. A tool in Mnemosyne should allow the user to first open a given database file (.mdb and so forth), then point to certain fields in it to tell Mnemosyne which source field will provide the contents for which target field. That's a standard…

            • cursor position in the card browser after editing/deleting a card

              After editing or deleting a card in the card browser, the list is displayed again from the start.
              Could the current/previous position in the list be remembered? Especially useful with very long lists.

              • sort sequence of letters modified by diacritical marks and ligatures of two letters

                When sorting the cards in the card browser by name and the name consists of letters modified by diacritical marks and/or ligatures of two letters, it orders them in an "ASCIIbetical" order instead of a true alphabetical or natural order, as in dictionaries.

                • make latex preamble set the same font-size as the cards use by default

                  Tthe default settings make the tex elements feel very much out of place, because they are so much bigger and don't really fit in with the rest of the card. Alternatively, the default font could be made as big as the Latex default font. Either way, it's annoying, that they don't match out of the box.

                  • support CSS classes for text decoration.

                    Since you already allow html tags this could be extended by using css: Allow for a .css file in the root folder of your app wich can hold user defined css classes, make your app check for that and use it if it exists.

                    • Put aside a repetition card temporarily

                      During the daily repetition, often a card will come up, the answer of which I know I know, but cannot quickly recall. I don't want to peek, but should like to move this card to the end of the stack of cards to be repeated, so that I can quickly deal with the easy cards and then come back to this one.

                      Giving a rating of 1 does NOT solve this problem, as first of all it shows the answer (and deprives me of the opportunity to give it myself), and secondly it ranks the card as unlearned, with the…

                      • Windows Store app

                        With the advent of Windows S for schools and students, it would be nice to have a Windows store app, otherwise there is no way to install Mnemosyne on this kind of OS (no .exe files allowed).
                        And isn't education the primary purpose of Mnemosyne?
                        I think that with time Microsoft will push developers to convert win32 programs to Windows store apps anyway, because of this OS. I heard there is project Centennial for that now. Universal Windows App would also satisfy those who call for a Windows Mobile app. But I'm not an expert, maybe it's too hard.

                        • Allow other rhythms than daily.

                          I like to memorise twice a day, and it would be great to be able to mark a card as "maybe known till the evening" - no longer having it appear in the morning, but seeing it again in the evening.
                          Other people may have still other work rhythms (say, every other day), so having this as a general feature would be nice.

                              I would like to see the "Find Duplicate Questions" feature improved as follows:
                              1) Allow for the duplicate scan to run on the "Active" cards, "All" cards, or also give a "Cancel" option.
                              2) When duplicates are detected, provide more assistance in merging and editing existing cards. This could use the same tool that is used when a possible duplicate is detected when new cards are being entered. It would allow me to step thru the duplicates set by set, edit/merge (or not), and I could quit at any time, keeping all of the edits that were made.

                                I would love to have mnemosyne give the option of a scratchpad, no special features, just a place to free text (but it won't save it, and it clears with each new card), so i can write down my thoughts on what I think the answer should be. Letting me commit to my answer before checking to see if I got it right.

                                      Display number of downloads in plugins, scripts and cards on the website so that you may get an idea how popular they are.

                                      I have submitted some scripts and cardsets to the website. I have no idea if I should invest time in updating or developing them further based on how popular they are.

                                      • Make it an option to scale images to fit the page.

                                        Resizing hundreds of pictures manually is frustrating, whereas Anki scales them to fit the screen perfectly.
                                        I'd pay for this feature in Mnemosyne.

                                        • Make it possible to drag and drop images/other media directly from search engine.

                                          I want to use Mnemosyne instead of Anki because I prefer Mnemosyne's layout, but it's just to cumbersome to have to download a picture/audio file and then right click to find it in your files and insert it that way. In Anki I can just drag and drop it right in when I'm creating the card.
