I have been using Anki without problems since November of 2019 and currently have version 2.1.33 on an Apple desktop.Today when I added some new cards, without having made any changes whatsoever to the field and card options, I saw that the font on the new cards was extremely small, the information in the front card was oriented incorrectly left to right and there were a few other changes which I hadn’t made. I examined some correct cards, noted their formatting and corrected this information on the new cards. Nothing; they looked as before. So I deleted the new cards and readded them, making sure that the information in “Fields” and “Cards” was correct. The new cards were STILL formatted incorrectly. I use Anki for studying Arabic and it’s essential that the program work correctly. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
9/26/20 I found the problem; it’s in the "styling, which I found quite by accident. Here’s the styling of a good card:
and here’s the styling of a bod one:
The problem is with the pixel size of the “bad” card which, in Arabic script, was too small to be read. Needless to say, I hadn’t changed this field, nor was I even aware it existed. I’ve now deleted the bad cards (again) and reentered them with the correct coding, so all is well. What worries me, however is that I don’t know the cause. which was apparently spontaneous.
