HSK 3.0 Flashcards

Hi Mike,

I wanted to do what JD did and generally it worked, where the entry has both tags (see entry for 解雇, screenshot attached). I have the old HSK ones tagged OHSK# and the HSK 3.0 tagged HSK#.

However, for a particular word (雇佣), I run into issues. The entry I find when I use the search feature has only the new HSK7-9 tag, but I know this word was also in the old HSK. Sure enough, when I click the same word next to HZ in one of the dictionary entries, it brings me to another, separate entry that has the old HSK tagged on it. Attached screenshots for reference.

Obviously it would be ideal to have these combined. I imagine this is not the only case where this happens, though I don't have other examples right now, only a vague sense when going through some words tagged only with HSK3.0 that some of them might have also been in the old set (I could be totally wrong though). The issue might have something to do with the definition having a traditional variant (which is what I gather HZ signifies?), but ideally since I'm using simplified these entries would be merged.

Thanks!
Not sure if it matters, but I should say that I installed the premade HSK3.0 cards after the recent 3.2.63 update.

Yes, it looks like the issue here is the different traditional characters. Do these cards come up as duplicates if you do a search for duplicate cards in Organize?

Hi @yellow,

to add to Mike's answer, you could try exporting either the Old HSK or HSK 3.0 Flashcards with only the Simplified character set and without Card or Dictionary definitions, then removing them from the categories they are in (not entirely deleting the cards), followed by a re-import of the exported cards list with the option Merge cats or "Update + merge" enabled. In the import dialog, you should choose the same dictionary order for definitions you used for the still existing HSK flashcards. This should eliminate any duplicates—based on the screenshots you have posted, they would almost have to be duplicate cards, because they are linked to different dictionaries. The export and import settings would be:

Edit: Of course, you wouldn't export all cards, but just the HSK categories you wish to export.

Good luck,

Shun

It happened the same to me when I changed the main dictionary from CC to PLC for my flashcards. It seems the dictionary entries with HZ in them (abbreviation of Hàn Zì 汉字) are treated as different dictionary entries. So if I had created a card under the CC dictionary and it had HZ, when I changed to PLC and downloaded the new HSK3 those cards were not transferred and would show under "Uncategorized". It took me some time of editing (batch and some of them one by one) to get everything back to normal

EDIT: I've also seen that if the 2 dictionaries had different pronunciation for the same word (for example last neutral tone vs last 1st tone), it would also create 2 different cards
