Interlinear gloss: easy way to add/edit?

What I mean: I DO NOT want to have to copy word by word into the cells; rather, the delimiter (, ; | or whatever) is where the borders go.

Do you need help with that? Adding a table to your cards? Or …?

( see post edit above :wink: )

I think what you’re saying is that you want to import a list of 10 comma-separated words into Anki, and have them display themselves as a 2 x 5 table on your cards.

The easiest way I can think of to do this –

  1. Setup your text file to have each word on its own, so it will be imported into a separate field on the note [ex: a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j]. Text Files - Anki Manual
  2. Then, in Anki, setup your card template to build an HTML table with a field replacement in each cell.

Very plain example:

<table border=2px>

–which will create something like this


Thanks very much for your reply … :smiley:

The solution is even simpler: so far, I’ve been using extended editor for field (for tables, search&replace, …); however …

… it is Add Table that offers what I need:


One of these days I’ll try one those Markdown addons; surely they’ll also do the trick …

You’ll have to forgive me for making it more complicated. I assumed you had text like you posted it – in a text editor, and muc more of it – and were trying to create cards from that text.

If you just want to enter it as you go, there are other ways.

Again, thanks very much for replying; I should’ve done a little bit more research before posting … :wink:
