Does type in answer comparison work with custom note types

I understand if I have a custom note type with extra fields I can manually add the typing directive, but it does not compare what I typed with the answer.

Am I correct in thinking that this functionality only works when using the Basic (type answer) note type?

Thank you very much.

You can use it with any note type, as long as you update your templates correctly. Field Replacements - Anki Manual

Hi, Thank you for your quick response. I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong, I’ve added {{type:Word with article}} to my card, but after I type in the answer and press enter the only thing that happens is the other side of the card is show.

If you have any ideas any help would be greatly appreciated.

The template looks like the following:

{{type:Word with article}}

<!-- For when image prompts exists -->
{{#Prompt}}
	{{#Noun declension}}
<small>Recall with article or if adj gendered forms</small>
<br>
	{{/Noun declension}}
	<img>{{Prompt}}</img>
{{/Prompt}}

<! -- For when image prompts are not present -->
{{^Prompt}}
	{{#Noun declension}}
<small>Recall with article or if adj gendered forms</small>
<br>
	{{/Noun declension}}
	{{Word}}
{{/Prompt}}

Is that the front template? Are you changing the back template as well? For examples, take a look at the link I posted, and at how the templates are written for the “Basic (type in the answer)” default note type.

Ah. I didn’t realize I needed to add {{FrontSide}} to the back template to display the comparison in addition to everything else on thee back side.

Thank you very much for your time and help. It is greatly appreciated.
