Cloze keyboard shortcut not working

The keyboard short cut on my Mac to create a Cloze Deletion within a card is Command>Shift>C. It has been working fine until a couple of days ago. When I select the short cut, a page of what appears to be code opens up on the right. There is nothing I can do from here except close it out. It is not an error message - just a page of code. I have uploaded a screen shot. My mac is version 10.11.6. I just updated to Anki version 2.1.38.

I am unable to enter any Cloze deletions.

Thank you!
Shawn

No screenshot was attached, could you try again?

Hello Damien,
Here it is. Thank you for looking into this! Feeling further and further behind - lol!

When I highlight the term that I want to do Close Deletion on - that is when this screen pops up.

You’ve opened AnkiWeb in your browser, which offers only minimal functionality. You’ll need to download and run the computer version instead - though please note .35 is the latest version you’ll be able to run on your machine.

Hello Damien,
Now I am trying to open the App on my computer and am getting a message that it can’t be opened. I deleted and re-downloaded from the website - the most recent version. Still getting the same error. Any suggestions? I was able to open this a couple of weeks ago.

Perhaps you downloaded the normal .35 version instead of the alternate version?

I am confused. Can you send me a link for the App so that I can load and use Cloze Deletion.

Much thanks,
Shawn M

If you follow the link I posted above, 2.1.35-alternate is one of the available buttons at the bottom.

Hello Damien,
Thanks again for all your assistance. I unloaded the version in my apps and started over! Loaded the Alternate version because that is the one that matches my machine version. I loaded and unloaded 4 times but to no avail, got the following error. What now? ~ Shawn

Please remove the app from your Applications folder, then open the 2.1.35-alternate .dmg file again, and drag it back into Applications - it seems to be corrupt. Does that help? If not, please ctrl+click on the app icon, choose Get Info, and paste a screenshot of what you see.

Damien - Hallelujah!! It is working now! It mystifies me though 'cause I did exactly what you suggested x 4 yesterday and kept getting the corrupt message. Perhaps something was fixed in the program on Anki’s end? Well I am eternally grateful for your timely follow up. I understand all of you volunteer? Thank you. Anki is a pretty amazing app. In return, I will find a way to give of my time and keep the circle of giving going.

Enjoy your weekend and stay safe!
