Showing hints / synonym during review for a single card


I was wondering how I can add a gray box when reviewing that shows a hint. For example if you are testing あの> English the answer could be “that or um” . I mentioned this in the Genki deck and it was implemented, but i am not sure how to add this to my own decks. When I think about all the synonyms going from English > Japanese it would be useful to have a gray box that states ( not —).Like in my screen shot here from the Genki deck.

I imagine this is done by scripts? Could anyone let me know how I could do this? Thank you. I suppose an alternative is just to add another synonym as an accepted entry.

You would have to edit the layouts that your personal cards are using in order to add it.

In this case you would add a field called “hint” to your template, fill in the values for your cards, add the field to your layouts with {{fieldname}} and then style it with css.

I plan on adding a feature that gives a hint upon input for these kinda situations as adding this yourself could become pretty difficult without having technical knowledge of html and css.

It’s been requested a few times before, so you can be sure that it is coming :slight_smile:

Thank you! That would be greatly appreciated.
