Feature Request: Edit card during review

It would be very helpful to be able to edit the text of a card during a review, to make corrections without having to leave the review entirely and go looking for the card. Maybe a simple double-tap on a card to bring up the edit card dialog

    Hi Sean,
    This is not as easy as it sounds, and may not be that desirable, because you would be constantly distracted from study, which is the main purpose of that mode.
    There are two ways to approach this now:

    1) Flag the note, and look it up to fix it after the slideshow
    2) Press the pencil button to edit the note, then simply select the second tab at the top to continue the slideshow. It is not really much more effort than editing in place, and you get full access to all editing controls.

    Kind regards,

    Are the pencil or flag available in the iOS version? I understand why it would be a distraction, for sure, but so is noticing an error and having to exit the lesson entirely to correct it. Thanks for your consideration, either way!

    Ah, no. I thought you meant the Mac.

    We are in the final stages of a major upgrade for iOS that includes flagging in slideshows.

    Stay tuned...
