Have questions when adding cards

I want to add a new card to the desk by long press the deck and click the “add” button. But I found the default deck wasn’t the deck I wanted to add. It’s a bug or something else?

This short video might showcase it.

Long pressing doesn’t select the deck even though the deck is highlighted (for some reason). You should try just clicking it once then back. The reason it was sent to Default is probably because you just opened the app and no other deck was already selected. I think this behaviour should change but I don’t know if this was ever bought up before the devs.

What do you have set for – Settings > General > Studying > Deck for new cards?

It sounds like you want “Use current deck.” AnkiDroid User Manual
