Adding pictures - Autofill for Booleans?

Adding pictures - Autofill for Booleans?

Postby MicMir » Thu Jun 30, 2022 9:27 pm

Hey Ernie, how is it going?

My question is about adding pictures through the Online Search option.

I have a Hungarian wordlist and I wanted to download corresponding pics but I noticed that the search is not "country specific" and I'm getting a lot of false results.

For example when I try to download a picture for the Hungarian word hal (which in English means fish) I'm not getting any pictures with the animal, only images with Hal Holbrook and another guy.

It seems I managed to solve this with using boolean so hal AND language:"hu" provides the correct images. I'm using autofill intentionally to save time but in these circumstances it's not that useful because I am forced to be copying the boolean operator over and over again.

Do you have any tip or idea how can I speed up my process again? I guess adding boolean options for the autofill menu would be an overkill, right?


Thanks in advance and keep up the good work,
Mína

Hi Mína,

I never thought of this. Yeah, ideally the app would know the language your autofill text is, and apply the appropriate image search criteria. I will keep this as ideas for a possible future update, but I don't plan on making any update near term. Sorry about that.

I guess you don't have an English column? If so, you can change the autofill to be from the English text.
Do you have your lists in a spreadsheet? I was thinking you could add a column with a more descriptive text search, for example concatenate your Hungarian text with " hu". This could be done quickly with a formula. Then in the app, use that Text column as your autofill source. This will create a new side to your flashcard, so the next step would be to adjust the "card layout" (in deck options) to remove that text item from your flashcard.
