Anki card format editor will not load for this card type after adding certain code

I have a deck for which I use hint fields. I didn’t know how to get the fields to display with a custom label so I copied someone’s example online and added it to my card formatting. That all worked fine.

Afterward I needed to tweak it a bit, but when I tried to get into the card editor, it froze. I restarted the computer and the problem persisted, though it loaded a little further than before.

I can edit the card on Ankidroid, in case I need to remove something, but the cards are working the way I want them to, so I’m a bit loathe to remove the code that I have now added.

After reinstalling Anki the problem goes away initially, but returns as soon as I try editing the card format. Interestingly the “About” window in “Help” won’t load either.


<div id=“audio” style=“display: none;”>{{Audio}}</div>
<button onclick=“playAudio()”>REPLAY</button>

function playAudio(){
var audioDiv = document.getElementById(‘audio’);
var audio = audioDiv.getElementsByTagName(“*”);




<a onclick=“‘none’;document.getElementById(‘myDefinition’).style.display=‘inline-block’;return false;” style=“display: inline-block; cursor: pointer;”>
<div class=hint>Show Definition</div>
<div id=“myDefinition” style=“display: none;”>{{Definition}}</div>

<div style=“text-align: left; font-size: 12px; color: silver”>Type what you hear…</div>

(I can’t get to this info because the screen keeps freezing, please let me know if it is needed and I will find a way to get it)
