Card links

Postby kozz84 » Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:46 am

Hey,

I've a problem with card links feature. I set it up properly, so when it works properly, but I'm having troubles triggering it. I've linked one deck to a combination deck (single word deck to a sentence deck). The problem is when I long press the card nothing happens and when I release the finger it flips the card to the other side. I have to cycle a few times through the card, sometimes go to the next card, go back and then it will trigger.

I'm experiencing this problem both on my iphone and ipad.

Could you add a designated button to show card link, so the program does no confuse press and hold?

PS. Happy New Year.

Hi,

Adding a link button is something I'm considering, but I haven't decided if I'm doing it yet.

You can force a long-press to jump to zoom/link mode: Global Options > Control > Advanced > Hold to Zoom.

If after you change the setting above, and a long-press doesn't change the linked-text to blue, you might have the link set up incorrectly. Since the card flips on a long-press, it seems the app doesn't find a valid link.

In your Card Links screen, you'll see 4 lines for each link you set up. Can you tell me what the 4 lines say?

I found a workaround this problem. Let’s say I have a,b,c sides and I won’t to link side B to another deck. Everything is setup properly and sometime it works sometime it doesn’t. So my solution tap until I’m on side „a”. Long press on side “a” and it flips to side „b” and immediate long press on side “b”. works 100% of the time.

I'm glad you found a workaround. Sorry for the trouble. I'm confused why it's not working well for you. I agree that sometimes it doesn't jump to link mode when I want it to, but it doesn't happen often to me. I think I'm trying to move too quickly when it doesn't work. I'll will keep this in mind and try to notice how often it happens to me and look for patterns. But I'm still not sure if there's something more going on in your case.

Maybe too many things are stacked in my case, since I’m using a lot of the features!! Text+images, linking to combination decks, flags and advanced srs settings with multiple layouts...

But another thing I noticed is that when I sync my devices sometime it changes my setting for card link target deck. It changes from link I set to “current”... it’s random and happens once every few days. Not a big deal.

"It changes from link I set to “current” "

Thanks for letting me know. I haven't seen or heard of this before, but I'll try to duplicate the problem on my end. If you notice any pattern or way to duplicate it, let me know.
