Nested cloze feature not working with "type:cloze" notetype

Hello there :slight_smile:

Anki 2.1.56 added the possibility of using nested clozes (Release 2.1.56 路 ankitects/anki 路 GitHub). These seem to work fine with the standard cloze deletion notetype.

They don鈥檛 however seem to work correctly if you use {{type:cloze:text}} within the card template to prompt you for typing in the enclozed text.

Using the example from the documentation

{{c1::Canberra was {{c2::founded}}}} in 1913)

Anki shows

Canberra was {{c2

as the answer to be typed, instead of

Canberra was founded

Front Template



Back Template

   text-align: center;

.cloze { 
   font-weight: bold;
