12. Dictionary and study files

12.1. Study files

The learned cards and their repetitions are stored in a special study file. It is kept in the same directory as the dictionary file. The study file has the dictionary name and “fms” extension. The dictionary itself always stays clean from any user-specific data, thus it is always ready to be shared with other people.

New in version 1.4.1.

The study data is automatically saved every 3 minutes, and also immediately when the study window is closed.


The study file must be always in the same directory as the dictionary. If the dictionary file is moved to another place without the study file, the application will not be able to find the study data, and will consider all cards as new.

Portability. It is possible to continue working with your dictionaries on different computers and even operating systems. For that purpose, the dictionary and study files must be carried over to another computer. The dictionary files can be put to any place as long as its study file is copied together in the same directory.

12.2. Export and import
