I would like to ask for this feature too:
Meanwhile, if that is not possible yet, I’m changing my
anki.desktop file to do
Exec=anki -p default. I’m using the generic
default so that I don’t need to remember to update this file.
What I have done:
- I have an existing profile called
- Create (in the base directory) a symlink
- Start Anki, in the profile manger add a new profile called
default, then Quit.
- Now I can run
anki -p default(or click the desktop icon) to start with the profile the symlink points to (i.e.
sockdolager). In the future, I can change the startup profile simply by changing the target of the symlink.
My question: Is there any potential problem with this approach? I want to be sure my files don’t become corrupted or anything. Thanks.
(One difference () I notice is when run with
anki -p default, the window dimensions/locations are reset, forgetting those remembered from running
anki -p sockdolager. Methinks the window geometries are stored, per profile, in
Update: Welp. I can’t sync either, because, I think, it’s part of the profile preferences, which are stored in
prefs21.db under the profile name.
I suppose this hack just doesn’t work. I can either rename the real profile to
default, or be met with the profile chooser every time; or, move the less frequently used profiles to a different base directory–yes, I’ll do this, I think.
