anki.errors.TemplateError: Kartenvorlage ⁨2⁩ hat ein Problem.
Die Vorderseite ist identisch mit der Kartenvorlage ⁨1⁩.

You notetype has two cardtypes with identiacal front templates. This is usually unintended, so Anki won’t let you export the faulty notetype.

thank you very much. Can you explain to my how i can find out which ones are identical and what i can do to help me with that?

Open one of the notes you can’t export in the browser. In the editor, click “Cards…”. In the new window, select “Kartenvorlage 2” from the dropdown menu. Then click “Options…” at the top right and “Remove card type…”.
More information can be found in the manual. For example on card templates.

Thank you so much for your effort, but i’m not very good with computers. I wanted to export 3000 cards, so i dont really know which card is / which cards are the problem, so i cant really find out without a very large amount of time. I also can’t find the “Kartenvorlage 2”. Its devastating. Im so sorry to annoy you with my incompetence.

No problem. From the main screen, open the “Tools” menu at the top and choose “Manage Note Types”. You’ll now see a list of all your notetypes. Select the first one and click “Cards” on the right. You can immediately close the appearing window by clicking “Save”. An error message will let you know if there is anything wrong with the current notetype. Fix the error (e.g. by deleting a template as described above) and try to “Save” again.
Repeat this for every notetype in the list to find any errors.
