Flashcards in RemNote can be made directly from notes in any document. These can be made using keyboard shortcuts or manually using your mouse. There are a number of different flashcards that can be made; listed cards with multiple answers, cards that test you on the question and the answer, pictured flashcards, and basic cards.

Once you’ve made your flashcards, RemNote can test you on these in a number of different ways. The built-in spaced repetition software means that RemNote will test you more on the cards you struggle to recall and less on the ones that you are confident on.

The video below shows you how to make flashcards, and how the spaced repetition algorithm works.
