Hello, this seems like a quick fix, so I’ll try to make it short. I’ve used Anki for years now but haven’t touched it in over a year.
The new issue I’m facing is that when I try to import a file, I’m only allowed two fields. In the past, I have added in multiple fields before and have fiddled with Anki enough to know how to rectify the issue on my own, however, now no matter what I do I can’t seem to get that extra field added during the import process. However, when I try to add a new card by itself, I’m given the option to add to the ‘example’ field, the same goes for reviewing my cards in ‘Browse,’ but that doesn’t exactly help me. I want to solve this issue so that I’m not adding in multiple entries one card at a time.
I add text files with three fields, front, back, and ‘examples.’ New cards are separated by a new line, and fields are separated by a tab. I wasn’t getting this third field option during import, so I tried updating the app to the current form, but that changed nothing for me. I’ve already tried to fix it by doing the following:
- Adding a new field into the card
- Creating a new card from scratch
- Ensuring the text document is typed correctly, saved as the correct type and encoding
- Trying different profiles
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
