Grouping Cards from Multiple Files

Grouping Cards from Multiple Files

You can group cards using tags.

A tag is simply a text prefixed with a # character.

#flashcard is an example of a special tag that indicates a flashcard (can be customized in the app settings).

Some markdown editors have built-in support for tags (e.g. Obsidian, Bear), but this doesn’t matter. You can use any text editor 👍

STEP 1: Create notes with Flashcards

Use this tutorial:

Simple Deck of Flashcards

STEP 2: Tag Notes with the same tag

You can tag the notes with as many tags as you like.

You need at least one common tag to group cards from two notes together.

Let’s group our cards about cats under the #cats tag

We can achieve that by simply adding more tags after the #flashcard tag

max speed of a cat : 30 mph #flashcard #cats
is cat a tiger? : genetically 95.6% #flashcard #cats #nature

How many people die from snake bites annually? #flashcard #nature
Around ~81.000 - ~138.000
people die each year from snake bites
- - - 

As you might expect — we have created two decks of cards #cats and #nature (each with two cards)

Now when you import the file — you can easily see and review your cards based on tags


That’s it.

It’s worth noticing that this approach will work across multiple files 👍

So your notes/cards can live within a structure of folders you designed for yourself (like Obsidian vault).
