Currently, the "Send as flashcard" button is hidden under an extra click on the
"Dot-dot-dot" button in the action bar.
I use that button all the time :)
It would be fantastic if you would consider making it show on the actionbar
(PS: Thanks for the most awesome and fantastic app ever!)

Hi, thank you very much for your praise and sorry for such a late reply :)
Actually, the "Send as flashcard" is marked as "ifRoom", it's just that it's
positioned after all other actions (add to notepad, tag, copy to clipboard) so
it overflows into the menu overflow. Try rotating your phone, or try running
Aedict on a tablet - the "Send as flasbcard" action should be shown again.
The Android guidelines state that the most-used item should be available first,
but Android provide no support for this. And, manually reordering menu items is

Thanks for your reply.
I see! Indeed it does show up if I rotate my phone.
Perhaps consider marking truly often-clicked actions (search, add to notepad,
tag, copy to clipboard, send as flashcard) as "ifRoom", settings-y actions (Max
columns, show kana/romaji) as "never", and add a resource override for
high-resolution screens where these five actions are marked as "always"? :) On
my nexus 6 (with a decent horizontal resolution) I'm sure more buttons could
fit. Attaching screenshot

Actually, the "max columns" has been set as "never", exactly because it is
clicked rarely (this will be available in next Aedict). The "show kana/romaji"
can be hidden in Settings, UI Tuning, Show Romaji/Kana button.
I have looked at the ActionBar/Menu API and there is no way of forcing how many
actions are shown. So, "always" is the only way.
I could use different menu resources here ( it is actually possible, to my
but the menu here is assembled from multiple menu items and it is not easy to
But, I have a suggestion: Since Aedict 3.9, in the entry list, you can slide a
dictionary entry item to the left, to reveal quick item actions:
add_to_notepad, tag and copy-to-clipboard. How about I add the fourth item,
send-as-flashcard, to this menu? So, instead of clicking on the item to reveal
entry details and then clicking three-dot menu and send-as-flashcard, you could
simply slide the item and click send-as-flashcard directly?
