Add one time info messages in the relevant screens on first run after update

It took me pretty long to find the new option “shrink images” in the 2.1.55 editor (even with add-ons disabled. My problem was not that the new icon was buried in the mass of add-on symbols).

I’d would have been much easier if I had some pop-up message the first time I opened the editor in the latest Anki version.

I don’t advocate for such messages for every small change in Anki. Only stuff that can totally change or ruin your Anki experience like the introduction of the note-card toggle in the browser or the “toggle sticky” symbol in the editor.

The change notes serve the same purpose, and consume less developer time. I also suspect what qualifies as “ruin your experience” varies from person to person. :slight_smile:
