I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Minimum width of windows

    The size of the main window and some other windows (e.g. the statistics window) is apparently determined by the length of the longest tags. Since my cards are organised using multiple levels of sub-categories, my tags become rather long, and thus the size of the windows often exceeds the screen width. Adjusting the size to a smaller width is not possible.

    Furthermore, card tags are shown in a single line between the icons in the main window and the front card area (behind the word "Question:"). I surmise allowing line breaks for longer tags might solve the problem.

        • For vocabulary: allowing learning production card from learned recognition card

          When learning a new language I find it easier to learn recognition cards before production cards. But i would like to be able to learn producing cards i already recognize without cards i don't yet recognize .

          • Add a cramming scheduler setting to display cards in the order they were added

            If I want to cram something which is sequential, like a poem divided into pairs of line for example, the most intuitive approach would be to review it sequentially. At the moment, I don't have the option.

                • Surjective questions (e.g. random photo from a list, same answer)

                  Useful for learning the name of plants, animals, etc. In order not to memorize a photo with a name, without carefully check the characterization of the specimen, the photo should change randomly, from a list.

                  • 32 bit support

                    Can't upgrade to Mnemosyne 2.0 because I am using a mac with a 32 bit processor. Keeping the program at 32 bit would help extend compatibility without any loss in functionality.

                    • Unrealistic ideas - move them to folder "Rejected"

                      Problem: Many ideas will never be implemented , yet they are 'mixed' with the viable ones; they 'steal' our collective time - because we can not avoid seeing them.

                      Sugg: they can be 'quarantined' in a folder "Rejected" .

                      • option/shortcut to hide status bar

                        An option to hide status bar. It would be nice if it was possible to do with a shortcut.
                        In my view the status bar might be mayor distraction while doing repetitions. It bothers me because I focus on number of not memorised cards instead of thinking about answer.

                        • In Review screen, increase the Font size in columns Question and Answer.

                          Existing font is too small and puts a lot of stress on the eyes.

                          • Sentence Mode

                            By using this mode mnemosyne would build sentences from tagged cards.

                            The user would be able to create sentence templates, for example: [subject::second_person_singular] [verb_type2::second_person_singular] [object_type2]

                            That way mnemosyne would be able to build sentences. The underlying algorithm would only have to be changed for words, which already have been learned, because those words will be used by mnemosyne without any restrictions, the unknown words will be scheduled as usual.

                            For example: He loves Iceland<->Er liebt Island

                            The user already might know the words "he" and "Iceland", and he might not now the word "loves" yet.

                            So the word "loves" will…

                            • Make text in error message selectable or copyable

                              If possible, make it easier for users to copy the text in errors so you don't have to type them manually or take a screenshot.
                              Also, if possible, make a button beside the error that takes the user to the bug reporter or forum.

                              • Mnemosyne not as a memorizing tool but as an evolving display of one's own interests

                                Mnemosyne can be employed as a construction tool for one's own digital cockpit. It could become a kind of display cabinet, parts of which one could share and parts which one can keep for oneself. Overviews can be seen in time but also as side view of the development of one idea into another

                                • Show % of total cards for each tag (put the % next to the card count number next to each tag in the lower left pane in "Browse cards" view)

                                  In "Browse cards" view, in the lower left pane where it says "having any of these tags:" it already shows the count of how many cards have that tag. It would be great to have a % right next to it, either % of active cards or % of total cards. Should be easy to add.

                                    Insisting that my plain text file's name be terminated with a ".txt" seems pointless. Is it possible to lift this restriction? Thanks!

                                      This should not be difficult, since it can be done manually.

                                      • Sequential N-Sided Card Type

                                        A triple (or arbitrarily many) card type where you are served the first question, click "Show answer" to display the next field (with an answer, and a follow up question), and click "Show Answer" again to display the field following THAT, until the last field is displayed and you rate your mastery as usual.

                                        This card type, at least the basic version, should not create sister cards.

                                        • list card type

                                          Add a new card type for "lists/lines". In that way you may memorize lists, poems or speeches more easily.

                                          The listes could be displayed in a way defined by the user, for example showing each beginning letter of each element or words, typing the words, randomizing the letters, enabling to randomize the items order and so on, remember the line that has been removed and so on.
