Anki: pointer being freed was not allocated

This is referring to anki, I know its an old version but some add ons still have not been converted over. Recently got an M1 mac, and when created sub decks it crashes and gives me the error code below (I can’t fit all of it). Can someone help :). I’ve got no add ons and it normally works fine on my intel mac.

If they haven’t been updated until now, there’s a good chance they never will.

Perhaps we can help you transition to the current version (2.1.49 or 2.1.50 beta) if you tell us which features your workflow depends on :blush:

A lot of former add-on features are now natively included in Anki - perhaps you wouldn’t need those old add-ons anymore.

The only add on that isn’t fully supported (that I need) is cloze overlapper. The current version for the updated anki is quite buggy and has limited functionality :(. Thanks for your kind words though :smile:
