Anki Zoom In

  1. Anki Zoom Instagram
  2. Anki Image Occlusion

I was wondering if there is a way to zoom in on anki web. Basically I have a photo (JPEG) in the front and another photo in the back. These have small letters that cannot be seen without zooming in. It is listed as Zoom2.1at AnkiWeb, and has its own github repo This page refers to the old Anki 2.0 version. A simple add-on to zoom in and out the card content (text). Three ways to zoom.

Remotely review flashcards with Anki.

A simple custom remote for the spaced repetition flashcard app Anki. Review cards while on a treadmill or across the room!



List of buttons, from top to bottom:

First row

  • Launch Anki
  • Go to Deck Overview
  • Quit Anki (with confirmation dialog)

Second row

  • Backspace
  • Select deck
  • Escape

Third row

The following features require the Zoom and Toggle Full Screen add-ons for Anki to be installed.

  • Reset zoom
  • Zoom in
  • Zoom out
  • Go fullscreen

Fourth row

  • Move up
  • Answer/Confirm selection
  • Move down
Anki Zoom In

Fifth row

  • Apply rating: 1/2/3/4

Sixth row

  • Repeat media playback
  • Mark card
  • Suspend note
  • Undo


  • Anki 2.0.x or 2.1.x
    • Please note that – due to key assignment changes – some of the features in this remote might not work with Anki 2.1. Unfortunately there is no good way to detect which version of Anki is running. As soon as 2.1 overtakes 2.0 in general use I will be updating the remote to reflect the new hotkey assignments.
  • Zoom and Toggle Full Screen add-ons for Anki (optional)


  • 2018-09-04: Added note on Anki 2.1 support
  • 2016-05-14: Added support for OS X (thanks to @luminousspice!)
  • 2016-05-08: Added more buttons; Restructured remote; Remote now asks for confirmation before exiting
  • 2015-08-09: Initial release
