    • Microsoft Clipboard Formatting Support

      It would be really helpful if it supported Office 2010/2013 clipboard information. So that it would retain bold/italics/font size/etc.

      One step further would be to also detect and store font styles that would be usable throughout the database.

      For Example:
      I have a very large microsoft word document that is using font styles for every component of my norwegian notes.

      The reason why I used this system is so that when I want to make a change to several thousand vocabulary words formatting I can do it by just adjusting the style profile.

      • Make it compatible with BYKI (b4u files) http://www.byki.com/

        There are a lot of card-sets offered here of them a lot with sound:
        http://www.byki.com/

        To import the files from there would be great!

        • make one card dependent on having successfully learned a previous one

          Suppose an English learner was learning the word "toothbrush". It would be facilitate learning if this vocabulary item could be left pending until both "tooth" and "brush" had already been learned.

          • Make a makro for super-quick re-tagging of cards

            It would be very good to have available a "makro" that retag a card in one click. Eg.:

            1) "Ctrl+1" would give the card with tag=Chpt_1 the new tag 1_Chpt_1,
            2) "Ctrl+2" would give the card with tag=Chpt_1 the new tag 2_Chpt_1 etc.

            For cards with multiple tags [Spanish::Chpt_1, History::Chpt_8] pressing "Ctrl+1" would give the the card the new tags [German::1_Chpt_1, History::1_Chpt_8]

            This way it would be easier to use the excellent tag-functionality in Mnemosyne 2.0 to
            1) Give appropriate priority to a card which you after some learning realise is more (or less) importent than other material

            • Skip the card under review

              When you review a difficult card, with this skip the card option, you skip it temporarily, not let it block the way to review other cards, just as you can skip some tricky questions in an exam and go back later.
              In my experience, thinking of the answer of a difficult card is time-consuming. But if we can skip it and go back later, the answer usually spring up, due to our magical brains in recalling.
              The function has been implemented on Mnemododo. Why not implement it on Mnemosyne 2.x?

              • Syntax highlighting and indentation for Latex and HTML

                Latex and HTML code should have a different color than normal text. That way it would be much more readable.

                I just found out about a feature, which I wanted to suggest. ^^ Ctrl+Tab indents text in the edit window.
                Indenting multiple lines of text, could be nice feature. For example: select some lines and then use Ctrl+Tab to indent all selected lines. Well, this feature, will probably not be added before mnemosyne 20.1, but maybe the devellopers will get bored one day. ;)

                • Set card background color based on tag

                  My language cards use Front-to-Back, Front-to-Back-&-Back-to-Front, Cloze Deletion types (I don't use Vocabulary type). It is helpful to use a different background color for each language so they are readily distinguishable (e.g. light red for Indonesian, light blue for English, etc.) But that requires a clone of each of the three above card types for each language. It would be much easier if I could set a background color which would apply, for example, to any Indonesian card, regardless of the card type.

                  • Search should ignore 'fast format' plugin formatting

                    If "fast format" is used, searching for cards in the browser (in the field "Containing this text in the cards") requires that the format characters be included in the search string. But often a user cannot remember if formatting has been used, or which formatting options and in what order. This means that some text matches may be missed in the search if formatting is not entered exactly. (I don't know if this applies to HTML formatting as well.) A search should look for content, not formatting. Therefore it would be better if the search ignores formatting strings.

                        It would be very good if a person can decide how he want to learn a card, I mean a person can decide how many days for a grad take till program ask the card again.

                        • Allow a card to be reset to 'unlearned'

                          I have quite a few cards at grade 2 with 'next repetition' set to about 11+ months ahead. These cards were put in when I first started using Mnemosyne so the delay may be due to incorrect grading, or old algorithms. I'd like to start them again without deleting and reinserting.

                          I'd also find this feature useful when learning a card v. similar to one previously learnt e.g. sabana (grassland), sábana (sheet). Sábana is not due for recall for 14 months - I'd like to see it coming up at a similar frequency to the new 'sabana' to reinforce the…

                          • upon pasting, convert existing formatting to html

                            Most of my time is usually spent on doing html formatting stuff. I've even wrote a simple app in C++ to simplify my job. But its still too time consuming. it'll be great if you could paste an already formatted text from an external app (which are in the format of rich text or RTF) and mnemosyne converted it to html.

                              • Add behavioral and/or EEG tracking

                                I would bet some money that (when you control for when the user switches away from the application) you could get some signal out of the delay before a user answers a question. I would even bet that it would be better than the users vote regarding how easy/hard it was.

                                It would be awesome to hook this up to an EEG monitor, although it is an expensive task. I might need to purchase a researcher grade Emotiv Epoch anyway, so if you want me to submit the raw data...

                                    An Apply button for the edit window would be useful when editing multiple cards from the card browser.

                                      Being able to reduce the number of grades (which should be configurable) would be great!

                                        It would be lovely if TTS could be included though I suspect this would be v. difficult due to the availability of decent free TTS engines and voices. Perhaps someone out there knows more than I.

                                          When one uses Mnemosyne for over one year, some flash cards will be scheduled in an exponential manner, for example, into the next 400 or 500 days, which is too long and uncertain. Sometimes you just want to keep reviewing those cards frequently, especially at a fixed interval. The penalty of giving such cards a grade 0 or 1 to review it frequently is also too huge. Therefore I suggest the following two new features to be considered: 1). Let users decide the next review time in the above case to add flexibility, and 2). users can optionally ask Mnemosyne…
