Changelog

LPCG 1.4.2

  • Add support for Qt 6, in advance of Anki moving to that GUI toolkit version. Builds of Anki that use Qt 5 will continue to work.

LPCG 1.4.1

Released on July 24, 2021.

  • Update all deprecated function and type names to current versions as of Anki 2.1.45.
  • Drop support for earlier Anki versions.
  • Accept Ctrl+Enter for Add Notes in the poem editor, just like in Anki’s standard add-notes dialog.

LPCG 1.4.0

Released on November 15, 2020.

  • Add an Author field to the note type, which can optionally be set when adding poems (thanks to @cashweaver). The author displays just underneath the title and index when reviewing, if present.
  • The Add Notes access key has been changed from a to d to resolve a conflict with Author (all the letters in Author were already taken!).
  • Allow quotation marks to be used in the title of a poem, now that Anki is able to escape quotation marks in searches.
  • Make the default values of the import spinboxes configurable.
  • Add screenshots to the README.

LPCG 1.3.0

  • Added options Lines to Recite and Lines in Groups of.
  • Add a Prompt field to the note type. This was added to support showing the user how many lines they’re being asked to recite, but could be used for other things in the future. Backwards compatibility with existing notes is maintained by displaying [...] if the field is empty.
  • The Line field now wraps each (or the only) line in <p> tags, to support multiple-line recitation with correct indentation. Existing LPCG notes without <p> tags will still display fine as well.
  • Invert color of cloze deletions in night mode, as the default color is unnecessarily difficult to read on many screens.
  • Added some automated regression testing.
  • Add a Help button to the import dialog leading to the documentation.
  • Under-the-hood refactorings and updates to newer features offered by Anki.
  • Refresh the documentation and move to Read the Docs for a nice multi-page view instead of relying on GitHub’s Markdown rendering.

LPCG 1.2.1

  • Provide a useful error message when generating notes and the LPCG note type is missing a required field.

LPCG 1.2.0

  • Support for Anki 2.1 (only).
  • Fixed several minor bugs in splitting poems into stanzas that could result in end-of-stanza and end-of-poem markers appearing on lines by themselves.
  • Fixed text flowing off the right side of mobile device screens (thanks to Jonta).

LPCG 1.1.0

  • Added support for changing the number of lines of context you want to see for a given poem. The default remains 2.

This is the last version that supports Anki 2.0.

LPCG 1.0.0

LPCG was completely rewritten and became a proper Anki add-on instead of a stand-alone Python script. A new note type is also used with this version.

LPCG 0.9.4

  • Improve the user experience when the temporary folder is not writable or the user specifies a nonexistent file.
  • Add a message explaining that Anki should have opened to import notes, in case it doesn’t and the user is left sitting there wondering what’s supposed to happen next.

LPCG 0.9.3

  • Fix typo in code that caused LPCG not to import successfully at all.

LPCG 0.9.2

  • Fix off-by-one error sometimes resulting in incorrect card generation.
  • Allow dragging and dropping files onto the terminal window to work correctly in more situations.

LPCG 0.9.1

  • Tags should not be mandatory.

LPCG 0.9.0

  • First public release.
