anki.errors.TemplateError: Card template ⁨3⁩ in notetype ‘⁨Basic+⁩’ has a problem.
The front side is identical to card template ⁨2⁩.

can’t seem to understand this post on another comment for help “You’ll need to adjust or remove the duplicate template by clicking on Cards… in the editing screen.”

  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+N, select “Basic+” from the list, and click on “Cards…” on the right.
  2. At the top of the new window, select the third card type.
  3. Click “Options…” at the top right corner, then “Remove Card Type…”.

You might lose some cards, but since they are all duplicates, it’s probably what you want.


thank you! great help, the problem is now solved
