Create Set Page Updated with New Formatting Options

The Create Set page has been updated to match the new responsive design of Easy Notecards. This new responsive design looks and works great on all your devices.

The biggest feature offered by the new Create Set page is the ability to format notecards. With a few simple tools you can now add emphasis and style to your cards.

Formatting Toolbar


The camera icon is used to upload or link to an image.

Formatting Toolbar Buttons (left to right):
  • Undo
  • Redo
  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Underline
  • Superscript
  • Subscript
  • Background color - Click down arrow to choose from 5 colors:
    • yellow
    • lime
    • aqua
    • pink
    • orange
  • Bullet list - Click down arrow to choose from 4 types:
    • Default 
    • Circle
    • Disk
    • Square
  • Numbered list - Click down arrow to choose from 6 types:
    • Default - 1, 2, 3, etc
    • Lower Alpha - a, b, c, etc
    • Lower Greek - α, β, γ, etc
    • Lower Roman - i, ii, iii, etc
    • Upper Alpha - A, B, C, etc
    • Upper Roman - I, II, III, etc
  • Decrease indent - Can be used for lists and paragraphs
  • Increase indent - Can be used for lists and paragraphs

We may add additional formatting options in the future based on user request.

Formatting Tips
  • Toolbar keyboard shortcuts:
    • ctrl+z Undo
    • ctrl+y Redo
    • ctrl+b Bold
    • ctrl+i Italic
    • ctrl+u Underline
  • To increase/decrease indent for a list or paragraph you must use the toolbar buttons since pressing TAB takes you to the next card
  • Formatting is kept when pasting from another source. This doesn't always work well. Use ctrl+shift+v to paste as plain text. (In chrome you can also right click and select Paste as plain text)
  • To single space use shift+enter

Quick Note. The ability to edit a card from list and card view will be added back sometime this week. Import cards will be added back within the next 2 weeks.

As the semester winds down we here at Easy Notecards have a message for you all:

"Good Luck and FINISH STRONG!"

  1. Hi!
    Thank you very much for Easy Notecards!
    I have been using your service for more than two years already and I really like it. It's awesome. The latest changes in the interface are great. The formatting options is a perfect idea,too. Unfortunately, I have to make a big effort to save the sets now. E.g., I have to save every four cards instead of the whole set of 20 and then go editting to add more cards. I hope this is a temporary difficulty that will be improved soon.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. It's always great to hear about people's positive experiences using Easy Notecards.

      I want to help you out with your problem but I need a little more information. Why do you have to save after every 4th card? What happens if you try to create a whole set at once?

      Feel free to reply to this message or use our Contact Form (http://www.easynotecards.com/contact) so we can get this figured out for you.

      Thanks,
      Chris

    2. Hi, Cris!
      When I try to save 20 cards at once the process of saving seems to never end. After a long time of waiting I have to give up, renew the page in my browser and no card is saved.
      It works better with a small number of cards. My nickname at Easy Norecards is kapelkasm, if you want to check it up from my account I can give you the password.

    3. The first thing I recommend doing is clearing your browser's cache. If you need help with this you can search "how to clear cache in [browser name]". I can walk you through the process but I need to know what browser you are using.

      Did clearing your browsers cache solve the problem? If not, does the problem occur when using another browser? What about when you use another computer?

      I apologize for the inconvenience this problem is causing. Thanks for your patience.

      Chris

    4. Hey is there anyway you can put the front side of the cards in alphabetical order? Because this would be very helpful for me as a study tool. I don't make my own flashcards on easy notecards but I use others and I can't determine which cards I need, quickly.

    5. Currently this cannot be done. I like the idea a lot though. Will look into adding this feature soon. Thanks for the feedback!
