Search for a hidden '.anki' folder on your computer (note the starting dot). It'll be in your user folder. There is a directory 'backups' in there which keeps backups of the last few times you saved.

I'm able to locate those files, but I have no idea how to use them.

Copy the most recent one on to your desktop, and rename it as "myfile.anki"

Thank you for your help, I appreciate it! It worked. Or well, it would have if I hadn't started recreating the deck already and give it the same name. All the relevant backup files got replaced. :D Almost back in business with the new and improved deck anyway.

I have 2 questions:
A) Is there a limit to how many cards you can have in a deck?
B) Would there be a problem if I had loads (Let's say maybe...hundreds) in one deck. i.e, would it slow down ect.

Hey, I just downloaded Anki today, and I think it is fantastic!
I'm using my first deck for phrases and vocabulary from "Japanese For Everyone" and it is working out great! ^_^

I got Anki today and I must say it's one of the best tools I've used since starting to learn Japanese about 1 year ago ; along with Wakan and Kanji Gold.

So far it has been working like a charm and really enjoying it.However i have some ideas ; wishes if you don't mind

-It'd be very nice if it could be used as a small pop-up window in the right of the taskbar ; showing the kanji and then choosing how you remembered it ; without switching windows while you are surfing the net or doing some other things
Sorry if already availible

-Where can I find a full Jouyou Kanji deck ; or better a deck with 5000-6000 common Kanji ? Can anyone share different decks if possible ? ^^

Keep up the excellent work

Yes great program, I use it to learn the vocab. in my textbook, since each lesson has two pages of vocab words to it ^__^. And tommorow, I will begun to memorize another "wall of vocabulary."
Nice program, keep up the work. B)

Glad everyone is finding it useful!

sushi4: Anki already has a mobile phone interface which works on any mobile phone in Japan. There are no plans for a PDA version at this time, since I don't have a PDA and the resources on PDAs are so limited. An ultra-portable PC is a better bet if you want to study on the move.

1) Is it at all possible to tweak the kanji report to allow two modes:
? Enumerate all kanji in all fields (the current functionality)
? Enumerate all kanji in the expression field (or any set of user specified fields)
I ask because I have my "facts" in, largely, pure Japanese so the kanji report generates a list of kanji that is slightly larger that what I'd be able to safely say are well known.


I'd like to second the feature request for the ability to limit the scope of fields used to generate statistics for kanji. I also often use dictionary definitions in my meaning fields or explanations from Japanese grammar books (in Japanese), and they occassionally contain kanji that I would not recognise out of that context.

Thanks again for all the work you put into the program, resolve.

After a busy 3 months, I've put out a new release.

* LaTeX support for equations
* A number of scheduling changes
o Cards are shown in order of relative delay, instead of deck order.
o Support for "high priority": cards will go to the top of the "new" pile, but will not take priority over existing reviews.
o Added a "final review" mode. When all cards have been answered but some cards were failed, these cards will be shown immediately instead of making you wait for a few minutes. This "final review" stage is indicated in the status bar, and you can choose to quit studying for the day instead.
* A number of sync fixes - deleting cards should work better now.
* "Undo" support
* Support for changing the colour of text on linux/win32
* Improved "new deck" dialog allows you to load a deck from online.
* Add 'compact' answer button mode to keep more space for questions and answers
* Add 'tall button' mode for easier user on a touchscreen
* JPG/GIF support on Mac
* Improved performance on x86 OSX due to inclusion of 'psyco'
* The statusbar on win32 should now updated immediately.
* Fixed issues with the recent files menu on win32
* A scrollbar is provided for models with many fields
* Improve autosave
* Kakasi (furigana generation) should work on PPC macs
* Strip HTML when searching
* Allow multiline furigana
* Show months instead of days for days > 30
* Fix bug where exporting would prevent deck from syncing
* Use default of 8-12hrs for hard cards in initial state
* Fixes for 64bit OSes
* Set focus to 'name' when adding new facts/cards
* Stop main window from creeping down on Mac on each load
* Don't show icons in menus on Mac
* Fix ALC URL
* Various miscellenous fixes

Merry Christmas!

Awesome, Downloading it now! All hail Resolve!! :D

P.S. I have uploaded my deck which I used to prepare for JLPT4. It has a 2158 cards. I know thats overkill for JLPT4 but it really helped me in my preparation. If anyone uses it, do tell me whether it has been of some use or not. Thanks ^_^

resolve-san, I uploaded 2 files by mistake. How do I remove one of them? :S
