Example of a duplex layout
Example: Duplex Layout
I have no intention of taking it down or charging for it. Current costs are covered by the advertising revenue. So, please consider the banners once in a while.

How does the duplex (2-sided) layout work?

The duplex option rearranges the answers so that, when printed on a duplex capable printer, they appear on the opposite side of the corresponding question. See the image at right. This may not be what most would expect, but it works. From there it is up to you and your printer. If you continue to have trouble, use the "Number each card" PDF option to help match up the front and back sides.

I've lost my cards. How can I find them again?

Cards can be found up to 30 days after they've been created on the search page.

Where did the import option go?

This caused more confusion than benefit, but if you must have it:




Advanced Features

Images
You can use images on your flash cards by using the full url to the image as the text of the card, beginning with "http://" (not https) and ending with one of ".jpg", ".jpeg", ".gif", or ".png". The url must be the only contents of the card. The image must already be uploaded and publicly visible on the web. Supported formats are GIF, JPEG, and PNG. Images must be less than 1 Mb in size. If you need a place to upload your images, I suggest DropBox (use the Public folder and the "copy public link" feature).

Line breaks, colored text, tables, etc.
Start your card with "[HTML]" and you can have full control of the format of the card using a subset of HTML. Note that the system makes no attempt to force your HTML to fit within the boundaries of the card. Supported tags are: a, b, blockquote, br, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, img, li, ol, p, pre, small, span, strong, sub, sup, table, td, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul

Math and Chemistry
Create complex mathematical formulas by using TeX notation prefixed with "[MATH]" or "[TEX]". Examples:

[MATH] rac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}

[TEX]6CO_2+6H_2O ightarrow C_6H_{12}O_6+CO_2\ \Delta G^\circ=+2870~ extrm{kJ/mol}


QR Codes
Prefix the text on a card with "[QR]" and it will be turned into a QR code image containing the remaining text. Example:

[QR]The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
