How can I create with many Fields?

See original GitHub issue

Hello first of all thank you with this python library. It is so cool! really helps me a lot in creating anki decks!

I have a question thoooo can you please help me and I think my question is just very very simple so here it is

my_note = genanki.Note(
  fields=['Capital of Argentina', 'Buenos Aires'])

On this code is you create a card right with the question “Capital of Argentina” and as the answer “Buenos Aires”… and it looks like this image image

I was thinking of can you provide an example on how can I make a field like this? image

Thank you so much!

Thanks for the help on this, @remiberthoz !

I think one thing to help make this issue clearer is we could throw an exception when the number of fields in a Note doesn’t match the number of fields in the Model. @gelodefaultbrain would that have helped you understand this problem and fix it on your own?

Hey! I’m not the author or genanki but I can help on this one. When creating a note, you can pass as many fields as you wish:

my_note = genanki.Note(
  fields=['Capital of Argentina', 'Buenos Aires', 'Casa Rosada'])

but this only makes sense if the model (my_model) you create defines the correct amount of fields:

my_model = genanki.Model(
  'Capital Model',
    {'name': 'Question'},
    {'name': 'City'},
    {'name': 'IconicMonument'},
      'name': 'Card 1',
      'qfmt': '{{Question}}',
      'afmt': '{{FrontSide}}<hr id="answer">{{City}}<br>{{IconicMonument}}',

So in you case you would have to define quite a lot of such fields when creating the model, and pass the list of values when creating notes.
