Henrik is currently working on integrating a button inside the editor to cause a field’s text to remain when adding, and we’re trying to decide on an icon. You can see some example screenshots and the associated discussion here:
Which icon do you think is best?

Just an additional idea if this is being added as a native Anki feature - would it be worthwhile adding some sort of reset button?
Using Ze Frozen Fields, if I add a card with a few fields frozen, the field will stay persistent. If I’d like to make an entirely new card after adding a few cards with frozen fields, I have to uncheck the icon, highlight the field, select the content and delete it for each field. A simple card reset button would make this process much easier and especially for those not familiar with the add-on.
Other than that, my vote goes for the pin!
Not a big fan of a separate button, but it could be possible with a modified key+click
Reviving this topic, because PR #1403 has lead to another change of icons for the editor.
I’m pleading to bring back the opacity difference for active/inactive icons, as it helps tremendously to identify sticky fields (or field states in general) at a quick glance.
Previously, active icons were in font color (black/white) and inactive ones were greyed out at .2 opacity:
The new approach is using different icons for the active/inactive state (nice idea @hengiesel!), but dropped the opacity change. I find it much harder to discern the sticky state now:
The eye and code symbol are easier, but would still benefit from a striking opacity change.
What do you prefer?
- Font color for active, 0.2 opacity for inactive icons
- Gray color for active/inactive icons
