Second card gets added to different deck

Version 2.1.22 (0ecc189a)
Python 3.8.0 Qt 5.14.1 PyQt 5.14.1
Windows 10

(I know I am not using the newest version, but I got error messages for HTML in newer versions.)

Not sure if this has been reported, at least I didn’t find any report on this:

I recently started using a second deck and observed a weird behaviour when manually adding new cards. The first card gets added to the deck chosen in the new cards dialogue. However, the SECOND card of the same note is added to the other deck.

new note 1 - card 1 —> deck 2 (= deck chosen in new cards dialogue)
new note 1 - card 2 —> deck 1 (??)

The card was added while I was reviewing deck 2 (i.e. the deck where I want both cards) In my opinion both cards of the new note should be in the same deck, and it should be the deck selected in the new cards dialogue when adding the note. Why is this happening and what can I do about it? Thx

Make sure that the deck override option is off. It can be accessed under Options in the card layout screen.



Thanks! What a neat option I never knew existed. Not sure why it was activated. Is it activated by default? Anyway, SOLVED!

No, but it’s easy to activate by mistake and not notice :frowning_face:

But you would need to type in the name of the deck that the cards should get moved to. That doesn’t seem like it easily happens accidentally.

Thanks again! I would have been searching for quite a while to come …

Actually, merely pressing Enter is enough to select some random deck.
This was fixed recently here:
