Creating a new card in an imported deck

hi folks,
I imported a deck and wanted to create a new card, but get an error:
Debug info:
Anki 2.1.64 (581f82c5) Python 3.9.15 Qt 6.4.3 PyQt 6.4.0
Platform: Windows-10-10.0.19044

Caught exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “sre_parse”, line 1051, in parse_template
KeyError: ‘\d’

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

re.error: bad escape \d at position 243 (line 9, column 100)

my templates are:





{{Back}} # styling .card { font-family: arial; font-size: 20px; text-align: center; color: black; background-color: white; } textarea { height: 300px; } .hint { color: red; font-size: 1rem }

I think the problem is the “backslash”. The card is about a PowerShell command:
copy-item c:\temp\a.txt -destination c:\temp\folder\b.txt → results in error
copy-item c:\\temp\\j.txt -destination c:\\temp\\b.txt → no error (but it’s no valid PowerShell command).

thanks for your help

The relevant add-on is not longer under active development, the issue with backslashes has been brought up before and there also seems to be a fix available.
