Anki Forums

Error Occurred.. I'm Confused

The tab that popped up is below this note. I have never used Anki before but the only thing I did was click add, change the type to basic(and reversed card), then type in the front and back sections.

Have you already tried this? Tools > Check Database. Does it help?

That looks like a bug, but I can’t seem to reproduce the issue when taking those steps. If you force Anki closed and repeat your steps, does it happen again? https://faqs.ankiweb.net/when-problems-occur.html

Yeah I have, it doesn’t work ;-;
