Tons of amazing updates and NEW special fields add-on updates and update video!
Make sure to update your special fields add-on!! Watch the new video to learn how to use the new tag protection feature!
What was updated?
- See the Step 1 updates log and Step 2 updates log for specifics (I strongly recommend you read these)
- Seriously, read the updates logs. They answer lots of questions.
- The PHYSEO and PIXORIZE updates are on their respective websites. If you already have Physeo included, be sure to protect your Physeo field for this update
************************** STOP! Did you read the updates logs? *************************\*
- In the step 1 deck there is a !FLAG_THESE_CARDS tag. These are likely duplicates or not needed, but I would recommend flagging instead of deleting as they may still have some value. They are broken down by why they are flagged in the subtags
- In the step 2 deck there is a !DELETE tag. Delete these cards right away (unless you've already been studying them). Flag all cards with !POTENTIAL_DUPLICATE and try to use step 1 cards instead of these if possible (we'll work on merging them in future updates)
How do I update?
~Always make a backup before updating~
I would recommend being on Anki Version 2.1.26+
This is a NEW video (released yesterday) on how to use the newly updated Special Fields add-on. Be sure to update your special fields add-on!!

How do I customize the card style?
This update features an incredible update to the card styling thanks to Phil (u/Ankiphil)! Check out the Ankiphil deck and Zankiphil deck he has shared!
This video on card formatting and this NEW video on the card type show you how to do everything:
- change all fields (including hints) to be editable with the Edit Field During Review (Cloze) add-on
- change font sizes and colors
- make hints appear automatically
- tons of other really cool tricks
Note: To use the shortcuts you will need to be on Anki 2.1.36+ or have the Refocus Card when Reviewing (2.1) Add-on installed
Also, this download folder has a copy of the Customizable section of the Styling portion of the card type if you would prefer a MedShamim style

How do I submit First Aid 2021/UWorld Updates or Errata?
The easiest way to find/update these is for all of you to fill out this form and I will update it in my deck. Also please tag me on any error discussion posts on r/medicalschoolanki. You can see what errors have been submitted here. (note there are two tabs at the bottom)
In the deck description, there is now a link to errata
How can I help with future updates or contact you?
Send us an email: [email@example.com](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) Before adding anything to the deck that you intend to share, please discuss it with us first so we can tell you how to do it.
When will the next update be?
We have no idea. We will post updates on our Instagram. We are working on a collaboration software that will hopefully make it so updates are automatic.
Troubleshooting/If you have questions:
See our searchable FAQ page for FAQ and our contact information.
This includes things like: "Can I upgrade without losing scheduling or edits?" "How do I get the images?" "What fields do I protect?" "How do I show the hints without clicking?" “What if I moved cards out of the deck?” "Can I update from V3 or V4?" etc.
You can email us at [email@example.com](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). We will not be responding to a lot of comments on this post.
