I am trying to build a set of language decks using Anki to study Hopi.
When I’ve set up a small deck to study words with the vowel “a” or “aa” and I try to set the “Deck type” specifically, Anki, when I observe the structure of the Deck after viewing Add tells me the deck is a “Basic.” Yet, when I evaluate that deck using the Browse selection I am told it is, if fact, something different.
The manual is not clear on why Anki will make a slightly different deck type; i.e., a Basic c4123, for example, or why the desired activities within that deck are different from what I’ve built in the Basic deck.
Is there anywhere a specific instruction sheet that will describe exactly and precisely how to build a specific deck with specific fields (including audio fields) and how specifically to make those fields behave as I need. The Manual as it exists is NOT particularly helpful.
It would be useful to be able to use Anki to actually study what I want to study instead of having to study how to program the software to do what I need it to do.
