Need help changing the note type in anki

I have around 100 flashcards I need to change the note type from basic to type in the answer, I have done it but then duplicates are made so I have another 100 flashcards to do. which card type do i delete, as i tried deleting the number 1 one and they all got deleted luckily i was able to get them back but now I’m really stuck.

If you use the default Basic (type in the answer) type, then this should not happen. I think the issue is that the note type has an additional card template.

  • You can delete the template from the card layout screen, which can be accessed from the Cards button in the editor.
  • Select the second card type from the top
  • Open the Options menu to the top right and click Remove Card Type
