Hi, I just recently got into using Anki following this Skillshare course called Learn Anything With Flashcards. Have to give props, really good course.
And one of the things the dude in the course drills in right away is using keyboard shortcuts, which I love. Alright, I start using keyboard like a pro. And I start noticing that sometimes I accidentally press on a spacebar button too strong, and the question disappears, when I actually didn’t know the answer to the question this time (but I did the previous times).
It’s because after answering the question and pressing space on ‘‘Show Answer’’, it’s the ‘‘Good’’ rating button that is highlighted automatically.
Being that I press Spacebar on ‘‘Show Answer’’, it also acts as an ‘‘Accept’’ for the rating button that is highlighted at the moment. I like the 1,2,3,4 approach, but if I press spacebar just a tad bit too strong, I don’t get to use the 1,2,3,4 and can get my answer set to be brought up in the next day (as when you answer card correctly multiple times, it is then set to appear in the next day), when I’d benefit so much more if I accidentally pressed spacebar when ‘‘Again’’ would’ve been highlighted by default.
Could it be made so that after ‘‘Show Answer’’ the default active button would be ‘‘Again’’, like in the picture below? If I accidentally hold the Space button too long (or get happy spacebar finger), I don’t mind answering something I seem to know already and reinforcing the information an extra time rather than losing the chance to reinforce when it’s necessary.
