It would be great if Anki would change it’s window title when studying a deck to “Studying deck_name” or even just “Study[ing]”. Currently, the window name when studying is the same as in the deck list screen: “User 1 - Anki” or whatever was chosen as the user name. For most users, this change would be a minor cosmetic improvement which would bring the study screen in-line with Anki’s other windows. For me though, this would be a huge help because it would solve a problem I’ve been having.
In case this is an XY problem: For complicated reasons I use
xdotool in a script to send keystrokes to Anki on a computer over the network. Using this tool, I can differentiate between windows with different names, except for the Anki studying window and the window shown when I finish studying a deck. I also use cards with audio and filtered decks, which have the unfortunate conflicting key of “r” for replaying audio when studying and rebuilding the filtered deck when done studying. If I’m not careful when studying my audio cards, I’ll complete studying and then hit “r” and rebuild my filtered deck, undoing my reviews. I’m not sure if this behavior of filtered decks is intended, but it sometimes bugs me and I undo the rebuild. Either way, having the window title change when studying and when studying is done would be a great help.
