to specify the deck.
2.) Create a new field just like “lecture notes”, but on the front template of the card. Essentially its purpose is to prompt me on the lecture specific portions/material that I feel is missing of a certain card.
I’m assuming that any of these changes will be wiped out with a sync to AnkiHub. I also know that you have a “Anking Note Types” addon, but unfortunately I can’t deploy my two use cases with that. Maybe it’s a feature request for that addon?
@jakub.f , couldn’t we support this by specifying a special open/close comment (just like our own special template snippet) which, if present, would be appended back onto the template after we modify it?
I think it would be good idea to specify a divider comment below which both add-ons don’t change any content of the card template.
The add-on would append the divider comment to all note types. So if you wanted to add some extra content to the template you could just add it below the divider comment.
This is easier than allowing custom sections to be added anywhere on a note type because if this were possible on an update to the template the add-ons would need to figure out where to put the custom sections on the new template and this would be hard when there are bigger changes between the old and the new template. For example if a custom section was between two fields on the old template and the fields don’t exist on the new template it would be hard to figure out where to place them.
I think this divider comment at the end of the note type would solve 1.).
