Card 1 Card 2 Please help :(

Hi, so I’ve come across the problem where when I make a card they count as two cards ‘card 1 and card 2’ now I’ve seen some forums saying that I can delete one card type so basically reduces my number of cards by half.

But I have 2 questions, why do I have 2 cards to start with? if I delete one card type what happens what effect will it have??

Also, how can I stop it from creating 2 cards every time because I don’t want to have to delete the card type every time?

Thank you!

A “note” is one Flashcard. But 1 note can be many “cards”. For example: back to front and front to back. Or if you’re using cloze cards, you can have c1, c2, c3, etc
