Cloze deletions

I've been a big fan and supporter of Studies since Mental Case (I don't miss manually syncing my decks, though!).

Recently, I've been re-evaluating Studies and comparing to other apps, namely Anki. I had tried Anki before, but didn't like it because UI/UX is a big deal for me. Studies isn't perfect in that department, but SO much better than Anki.

Since so many people swear by Anki (especially med students), I dove a bit deeper. While I still don't love it, the one feature that I REALLY wish was available in Studies is Cloze deletions.

This is a big time saver and critical to mastering knowledge, rather than rote memorization. I used to create 2 cards to accomplish Cloze deletions, but that becomes overwhelming, both in the time it takes and the psychology of seeing so many cards (and potentially having to edit twice if there is a slight error).

I would love to see a way to create Cloze deletions in Studies.

e.g. mark a word or words to be alternately hidden as the answer. For example:
The capital of {Argentina} is {Buenos Aires}
Would result in:
The capital of Argentina is __________.
The capital of _________ is Buenos Aires.

I'd love to hear if there are other solutions to have a similar result. Thanks!

    Hi Nathan,

    sorry for late reply.
    thanks for you suggestion!

    I will consider it. It looks interesting indeed, but right now I have no idea yet how to fit it into studies data structures and user interface logic

    Kind regards,
