Rename Database
Name The new name of the database as it is displayed in karatasi. The filename for the database will be derived from this name and will always be unique on the device.
Activate Database
On-/Off-Switch This switch excludes the database from the learning process. A deactivated database can still be used as a dictionary, and you may add data to it.
HTML data tag
tag string If you set a html tag string, all data fiels that start with this string are displayed as html code. You can use this for special formating of learning data. See html content for details.
Learning Parameters
Difficulty This is the initial difficulty of a card in this database when it is committed to the learning process. The difficulty for each card is calculated individually in a feed-back loop based on the learning progress. It determines how fast the repetition interval grows for this card. The default value is 40. In case of extreme difficult learning content you can increase this parameter to enforce more repetitions.
