Text Size

If you find the text is the wrong size, there are two environmental variables you can try:

  • ANKI_NOHIGHDPI=1 will turn off some of Qt’s high dpi support

  • ANKI_WEBSCALE=1 will alter the scale of Anki’s web views (like the deck list, study screen, etc), while leaving interface elements like the menu bar alone. Replace 1 with the desired scale, such as 1.5 or 0.75.

On Windows you can add these to a batch file to make it easier to start Anki. For example, create a file called startanki.bat on your desktop with the following text:

start "Anki" "C:\Program Files\Anki\anki"

After saving, you can double click on the file to start Anki with that setting.
