I think the killer feature for of Anki is the addon image occlusion. Please add this feature so that I'll consider using studies!

    Thanks for the feedback. We'll consider this as a feature option in future.

    In the meantime, I think you could come pretty close by:

    1. Opening an image in Preview app
    2. Putting rectangles over the labels in the image
    3. Using Studies built in screenshot capture to capture the image with and without a label covered.

    A bit more work, I agree, but probably not that much more in the grand scheme.

    Anyway, thanks for the feedback. We'll see what we can do.
    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the fast reply. This is also a plus.
    Do you possibly plan to implement an import feature for Anki cards?
    That way I could use Anki for the occlusion function. The problem is, that I do not want to reveal all labels at the same time. I tried it, but it doesn’t work right now.

    Best regards,

    We have been considering anki import, but it is unlikely to support all features that anki has. They don't have an open format, so we would be reverse engineering the format, and would probably start with the basic Flashcard features.

    Kind regards,
