Missing "extra" field


I have just downloaded Anki, but I see that I am missing the “extra” field that is present in many of the Anki tutorials. How should I fix this?

Default cloze cardtype has been with no Extra field for a while. I really can’t tell when the change was incorporated. You can quickly add it yourself. Click Fields... button to summon the window.

And later click Cards... buton to open the template view. Add {{Extra}} at the back template.

Cloze" cards are no longer showing the “extra” or display images when added.
1.In order to solve this please follow these steps: in an empty cloze card, add a new field and name it “extra”
2.close the card and go to the main anki window and go to “tools”
3.select "manage note types "
4.select "cloze "
5.select "choose cards "
6.at the bottom center choose “add field”
7.change field from “text to extra”
8.change “add to”: from “front to back”
9.Press ok and try and see if works
