As the title suggests, I have several note types in which I use latex, and I would like them to share a common header (for custom commands/package imports that I often use), so I don’t have to copy the said header in every note type LaTeX header in the options. How can I achieve that?
Anki does not have a built-in feature to do this, but you could accomplish it by writing an add-on.
Apparently it requires more tests
Error An error occurred. Please start Anki while holding down the shift key, which will temporarily disable the add-ons you have installed. If the issue only occurs when add-ons are enabled, please use the Tools > Add-ons menu item to disable some add-ons and restart Anki, repeating until you discover the add-on that is causing the problem. When you've discovered the add-on that is causing the problem, please report the issue on the add-on support site.

When I made the current version in the spring it worked. Since then I haven’t changed my latex settings.
This add-on overwrites a built-in function which can always break with future updates. But this was the only way to create the add-on.
Anki’s internals have changed a lot during this year and this add-on broke with Anki 2.1.28. In the meantime Arthur added a hook into the relevant function so that now an add-on can be made that shouldn’t break so easily.
I haven’t done much add-on development in the last months so I have forgotten a lot about pyqt and Anki’s internals (which have changed a lot over the year). But this modified
__init__.py file should work.
As always: use it at your own risk. Have a backup and know how to restore it. I didn’t test if the changes are properly synced. Let me know if it works for you.
Very nice, the patch was effective, it worked as expected, even when synchronizing. Thanks!
