Filtered deck ignores clozes

Hi, I’m trying to make a filtered deck.
The original deck is all cloze cards (85) that more or less look like this:

{{C1:: thing one, thing two}}

{{c2:: ingredient

Garnish {{c3:: thing three}}

Some cards don’t have the garnish/3rd cloze. I want the filtered deck to have only the cards with the 2nd cloze

According to the docs, my filter should be deck:deckname card:2

And when I use the search function in the card explorer, all 85 cards I’d expect are there. But when I use the same parameters to make a filtered deck, only 68 make it there. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Are any of them suspended or buried? Filtered Decks - Anki Manual

Filtered decks cannot pull in cards that are suspended, buried, or already in a different filtered deck.

Nope, none of them are. If it helps I won’t mind sharing the apkg file, maybe I’m missing something

No, I don’t think sending the apkg will help, so let’s cast a wider net –

  1. Do you have any other Filtered/Custom Study Decks? Are they all Empty?
  2. Are we talking about 85 cards, some of which are cloze #2 – or 85 notes that make multiple cards each?
  3. If notes – does every one of the 85 notes have a cloze #2?
  4. When you search in the Browse window and see “all 85” – are you in Notes mode or Cards mode?
  5. Make sure you’re in Cards mode, and change your search to deck:deckname card:2 -is:suspended or deck:deckname card:2 -is:buried – does the number go down?

Thanks, I had another filtered deck that filtered based on a tag. My bad, might as well answer in case it’s useful for someone later.

85 notes, totalling to 240 cards
They all have c1 and c2, only 70 notes have c3
I made sure I was in card mode
The number didn’t go down, it was just that other filtered deck tripping me up. Thank you!
