Anki 2.1.55 Beta 7 / RC1 / RC2

It’s an intentional change. I can only guess as we haven’t polled the userbase, but I’d say most users will benefit from this behaviour.


This is on purpose. It’s documented in the changelog of Beta 1: Changes in 2.1.55 - Anki Betas


I know I have seen a few reports of a lot of flickering in the 2.1.55 betas, but I don’t recall whether any developer has been able to reproduce. I just want to let you know that it is still in beta 2.1.55rc2 on Mac Intel using QT 6. Sometimes it seems sporadic and hard to reproduce, but I found one situation where I seem to be able to reproduce it easily. I line up the Add window next to the Decks window, and move the mouse (no clicking) between the deck and a field name in the Add window. In this case, the flickering can be pretty severe, and I captured it on video so you can see what I mean:

2.1.55 was released as stable today. Changes since rc2:

  • Fixed the Mac build shipping the wrong Qt version, which explains @garrettm30’s report
  • Reverted the change where changes to media files are scanned for on every sync, since this can get quite slow.
  • Fixed the sync spinner not showing when media is syncing

Thanks to everyone for testing! Please report any new issues you encounter with the stable release on a new thread.

@Zaldroc I’ve logged your issue here: Editor jumps to top of window when enabling HTML editor in Qt5 · Issue #2271 · ankitects/anki · GitHub


Nice work, guys. Thanks for listening the community.


Yes, thanks to Dae, Kleinerpirat, Rumo, Hgiesel, Hikaru, Abdo, Glutaminate and all others who have contributed for doing such a great job, as usual.


This ended up as a really nice release! Thanks to everyone for all your hard work :slight_smile:

Wouldn’t putting the Calendar after Today in the order of tiles save vertical space on screens where the statistic boxes are shown in rows of two?

Any thoughts? I tried fixing some margin symmetry and text alignment issues, as well as thickening the separator line.

The buttons at the bottom of the screen are also too round, almost as if they were meant for tablet users.

The font on the “Congratulations…” screen when you have finished a deck is thin and only takes up a small fraction of the screen width.

Compared to light mode, the deck highlight when hovering over it is very dark.
When hovering over a deck and pressing the settings icon, the hover disappears, only leaving the residual hover of the last opened deck / first deck (if none have been opened yet)

Many of these aren’t new in this version, they have just been amplified by the changes in the styling
