Issue with adding new cards in Decks

Hi all, I’m discouraged.

At one point my Anki desktop stopped adding cards to any decks, I add - and the program just changes color a little that is all become dull and nothing happens. What to do?


That’s right - the cards are not being added.

As you create, it is normal for this to happen - color changes. The problem would be if the created cards were not added.

Did you confirm this is actually the case by opening the cards browser and searching for the cards? Click the Browse button at the top bar.


Yes, that’s right I just checked. I don’t understand where this problem could have come from.

What is your anki version?

Version ⁨2.1.49 (dc80804a)⁩

Chances are they are being added. You can use the ‘added today’ option in the browse screen to locate recently added cards. If they are not, please follow the steps here: When problems occur - Frequently Asked Questions


Hi dae!

You’re absolutely right by the way, I clicked on the “browse” button and looked at the “added” today. They are all there, but for some reason they do not appear in the program immediately for me to study them - as if they do not exist.

If anyone has any idea why this is happening, I’d love to hear about it.

You can use that screen to confirm the cards are in the deck you expect them to be. If they don’t appear when studying the deck, perhaps the daily limits of the deck are not high enough to allow the cards to be shown.
