  1. Display set number of cards and redisplay learned cards at random

    I’d like a feature where Mnemosyne stops displaying cards after a preset number of cards. Say like the 15 cards warning, but not displaying more cards. Since the continued display of cards makes me go into a clicking frenzy and going through cards faster than wise and without the full learning effect. It also skrews the time statistics. I just looked at a card that says it looked at that card for about two minutes average, I don’t look that long at cards, but I do leave Mnemosyne sitting opening to review more cards later.

    In addition it would be…

    • Add a toolbar button to toggle Cram Mode on/off

      A button on the toolbar would turn the Cramming Scheduler on and off. This would substitute one click for the four clicks of Settings > Manage Plugins > Cramming Scheduler > OK -- which is tiresome if a user often enables/disables cram mode.

          • Print a warning when Tag name has the [;].

            When a Tag name consists of the [;] typed, instead of [:], print a warning.

              • Pan Image and Disable "on the fly"

                You did an excellent job! Very useful and simple.
                I have just a couple of suggestion :
                1)
                if a card contain an image larger than current window, please add ability to pan image (eg: using ctrl+arrow keys) and/or open it with default app (eg : double click on it).
                2)
                Another suggestion is to add a button other than "add, edit, delete" current card to temporary disable current card (eg assigning to a default tag thet is disabled ).
                Thanks in advance
                Bye :)
                Max

                • Allow to activate cards using Boolean operators

                  Version 2.2a allows to activate all cards that either have at least one tag out of a list or all cards that do not contain a tag out of the list.
                  It would be very useful if one could combine several tags (or even several such lists) using Boolean operators.
                  One could then easily activate all nouns in a certain language from specific lessons of a course book, by ticking for instance "noun", "French", "Beginner's Book::42" in three lists and connecting them by the operator AND.

                  Thank you very much for developing and maintaining Mnemosyne.

                  • allow pictures imported to a question to resizable.

                    importing a picture is a very useful function as it helps fortify associations with the answer so your brain has more information to draw on while trying to remember/ think of an answer. Although this program does this, the picture imported is always very large.

                        • Simpler sessions

                          introduce two modes.
                          1. Exam mode - unlimited number of reviews at a session.
                          2. Normal mode - limited number of reviews at per session (5)

                          The normal mode would increase usage of the software by making studying easier - only a few things to learn at a time.

                          Not only that, this normal mode should be made up of at least 30% of familiar cards. This re-enforces old ideas and sandwiches new cards to make learning less difficult.

                            • Switch to a Foreign language when typing in Answer field.

                              Problem in making Cards [when learning a foreign language.]
                              When adding or editing a card, we switch from Foreign to Native language many times -- while 'optimizing' the card.
                              Multiple switching takes time.
                              Suggestion:
                              Assign a Foreign language [user chooses it in Settings] to the Front side of Cards.
                              That way, as one 'clicks' on the Front side - the Foreign language is activated.
                              Should work in the Browser, too.

                                It will produce:

                                • A way to use the program for flashing cards without human intervention

                                  This is helpful when learning a language with a different alphabet, especially if the time intervals can be steadily decreased. (Simply displaying the cards can't be that difficult if it can be done with AHK.)

                                  Once you have the function for stepping down the list you can also use it to do automate searches and replaces in a set of cards. (Say, for example, to remove the "_missing" from cards after the audio file has been found.)

As you can see, I was adding 20-80 cards every day for twenty days, about a chapter a day, and when I finished the book, the last ten days were just spent reviewing cards. You can see at the end that according to my own target of 4 or better, I had learned well over 500 new German words by the end of the month. And I knew these words outside the context…

                                    • Adjust near-future workload

                                      My number of cards per day can sometimes vary a lot (say, from the 40s to the 80s). It would be nice to have Mnemosyne, on request, adjust some cards' schedules so that the upcoming schedule is more smoothed out. I assume that it would start with the best-known cards since those are the ones who would be least affected by moving the next repetition by a day or two.

                                      Similarly, if I know that there is a day in the future that I won't be able to study, it would be nice to be able to mark it as…

                                        Working with flashcards featuring a lot of pictures, it would be nice to have an option for turning on an immediate preview of images while the user is still in the "edit card" tab.So no need for pressing "preview" as in preview mode of course you cannot work on the possible text you want to wrtie below your images.

                                          Support for using already existing cloud services (dropbox, google drive ...). Then both computers don't have to be online when syncing, and you'll never have to think of syncing manually.

                                          Perhaps it could build upon the existing sync. function in mnemosyne, instead of syncing directly to another computer, pull the data from an folder. Check the folder each time mnemosyne starts, update the folder when mnemosyne quits.
