Change Windows desktop application's font

I switch between the macOS and Windows desktop versions of anki. The fonts for the two desktop applications are different.

  1. How do I change the font for a deck (or the whole application)?
  2. How do I check the current font?

Thank you!

you can’t change font for a specific deck. you can change font for a specific note type, or whole anki interface (using an add-on).

Changing font for cards (review screen)

to change font for a note type:
go to “Tools -> Manage note types” then press “Cards…”. there you’ll find a field called styling, it’s something like this:

.card{
 font-family: Arial;
 font-size: 20px;
 text-align: center;
 color: black;
 background-color: white;
}

you can change Arial to whatever font you like.
this changes font for everything on the card.

Changing font for card editor

if you want to change font in card editor dialog:
go to “Tools -> Manage note types” then click on “Fields…”. you can change font for each field in there

Changing font for whole anki interface

if you want to change font for anki interface, you can use Change Interface Font add-on
