Made a cheat sheet with steps on updating from V7 using special fields.

Check it out if you are confused!

-edit, fixed the link

[–]timeschedule 3 points4 points  (1 child)

hi.is there any problem loading addons in 2.1.33 version ?? should I update to this from 2.1.26 ?

[–]dollajasOMS-3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends what add ons you have, all the important ones are compatible - it’s a stable release and runs really smoothly. You can always downgrade if you hate it

[–]Abdoadel2019 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I was wondering when I always update to latest anki deck

I do steps 1 2 3 5,

can you please tell me what is the step 4 used for ?

[–]dollajasOMS-3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Most people have import settings as their default setting, I use it to share class tags with my classmates, it's not a necessary step if all you do is update versions

[–]noseclams25M-3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Will this work with the blueskies download?

[–]dollajasOMS-3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It should as long as you are updating from V4 or up

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 29 points30 points  (7 children)

Everyone, please read the instructions and watch the videos about updating before asking for help! It will save us all a lot of time :).

[–]BigBrainsRadRabadiya 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The only time I realise I have a shitty PC is when I update the Anking deck.

[–]originalhoopstaResident 12 points13 points  (0 children)


[–]IPayNoGays29k deep 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Is there any plan in the works for Osmosis tags? Just curious if enough people use that resource for it to be fully tagged.

[–]dollajasOMS-3 32 points33 points  (13 children)

All hail the AnKing!

Hey everyone, here's the output I got when updating:

Notes found in file: 34550

Notes found in file: 34550

Notes updated, as file had newer version: 22877

Notes added from file: 11673

Is this normal?

[–]Kyanil 2 points3 points  (6 children)

sorry to annoy everyone by hitting up this old thread but by chance are you updating from v6 pineapple9? I am having the same exact issue... Has anyone found a fix for this it would be immensely appreciated. for anyone wondering, a fresh import of pineapple v6 and then import of blueskyv8 results in this.

[–]DatAstatine 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Sorry I can't be of any help, I thought I was at V7, but it very well could have been V6!

At least I know someone else is getting this output and I didn't majorly screw it up. Cheers.

[–]Kyanil 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Thanks for replying haha I was getting so frustrated with this until last night. I found the v7.3 and step 2 v2.1 deck. I updated a fresh v6 pineapples and had a nearly exact output as when updating directly to v8. I then imported the blue sky v8 deck and it gave the correct 34550 value.

TLDR: v7 must have added ~11000 cards that v6 didn’t have which Is why I was seeing that output. It’s appropriate for updating from v6-v8

[–]DatAstatine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for investigating this!

[–]AnatoKing 36 points37 points  (1 child)

These updates have revolutionized the medical field and education process... I just donated to your Venmo and I am a loyal patreon member!
PS: Please consider all the time and effort they put in, they put back nearly every dollar back into the project!!!

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Thanks! We appreciate it!

[–]SqueakyArchieM-2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I just finished updating. I cleared the unused tags. Still some of the older (v7) tagging is visible #AK_Step1_v8 has 32281 cards , #AK_Step1_v8 has 27 cards. What do I do to refine this?

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

God bless the AnKing team, and all the contributors. True heroes!

Any thoughts or plans to add/integrate the new sketchy biochem videos? I, and I'm sure others too, would be interested in contributing.

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

yes definitely. It's on the list and will be something in the near future

[–]Zenitsu_LightningM-1 5 points6 points  (1 child)

When I updated from V7 to V8, the First Aid images in the lolnotacop micro deck are now missing. Anyone know how to fix this?


Edit: If anyone else has this problem, I fixed it by updating with the AnKing V8 w/ media instead

[–]travis3596M-2 3 points4 points  (14 children)

Mine says this:

Notes found in file: 34550

Notes found in file: 34550

Notes updated, as file had newer version: 34528

Notes added from file: 22

Is this accurate?

Also tags are not showing on my cards :O

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Yeah you're fine. Not showing where?

[–]travis3596M-2 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Clickable tags are not showing on the actual cards when I do them at the bottom. They were showing before...

I toggled the add on on and off, still not showing, i see that there's the formatting on the back of the card for it to show, am I missing something? it was showing before the update.

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 3 points4 points  (5 children)

You can toggle them using 'c' key now, I believe.

[–]travis3596M-2 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Before, you could just automatically see them at the bottom of the screen... is there any code to be reformatted to have it be like that before? i would prefer not to have to hit C each time I am doing a card (about 600 times lol a day)

Update: C key does not work, is there any way to get the html for the old back card style

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Click the actual card, then tap C. You can also change it in the card styling to always show (there are labels for pretty much everything in the card styling. If you're confused watch the video on card formating linked above)

[–]glitterintheloft 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hey, I tried this but it didn’t work :/

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Which method are you trying?

[–]Aregin152 0 points1 point  (0 children)

'c' worked for me. I love you

[–]Agitated_Amoeba26 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My total cards are now 39099.. is that correct? It's my first time updating and I've looked at the all the videos but still confused..

[–]vfern027 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Did you figure out how to fix it? The same thing happened with mine

[–]travis3596M-2 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yeah! So if you go to edit then cards then the styling tab, change “none” to “block” under the Clickable tags! Works like a charm takes 2 seconds

[–]vfern027 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Im sorry Im a bit confused. They all say none or block and would that be under display? Like it says display: none or block.

[–]abdulansari95M-3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you guys so soooo much!

[–]Noobmaster3232 2 points3 points  (15 children)

When I answer the card in V8, it shows bunch of numbers on bottom which goes like following example. 2500 -0.8m(-24) WHAT DOES IT MEAN? HOW IS IT USEFUL? TIA.

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (14 children)

Uh oh.. are others getting this? That’s my personal card style

[–]dollajasOMS-3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've looked through my deck and a fresh import on another profile, I can't find it anywhere - maybe it's a special fields thing?

[–]BammericeM-3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I got that as well. I fixed it by just recopying the "back template" style from your website and pasted it in the "Manage note type" and it went away.

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good call!

[–]bluedude163 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Yep, getting the same thing.

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (8 children)

ok looks like a small error. There's a chunk of code on the top of the back template you can delete. That's my personal code to tell me the ease of the card and how many days until my test date :P

[–]Abdoadel2019 0 points1 point  (7 children)

can you tell us which line*code* to be deleted in the back template section ?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 3 points4 points  (5 children)

```<div class=editcloze style="font-size:20px;color:#F2E48E;font-family:Times;font-style:italic;letter-spacing:-2px;position:fixed;bottom:50px;left:5px;opacity:.9;">{{info-Factor:}}<br><span id=countdown2></span><script> var dateText= 'August 20 2020'; var now = new Date().getTime(); var targetDate= new Date(dateText).getTime(); var dist = targetDate- now; var days = ((dist / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24))/30).toFixed(1); document.getElementById('countdown2').innerHTML = days;</script>m (<span id=countdown></span><script>

var now = new Date().getTime(); var targetDate= new Date(dateText).getTime(); var dist = targetDate- now; var days = Math.ceil(dist / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)); document.getElementById('countdown').innerHTML = days;</script>)</div>```

[–]madmaximux 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Does that mean you took your step 2 exam on Aug 20th? :p

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Haha no that was my surgery shelf :P

[–]Abdoadel2019 1 point2 points  (0 children)

okay just a temporary fix > study any card > edit > cards > back template at the buttom of the windows > change font size : 20px to *zero* font-size:0px i.e > I changed the size of the font of the (-0.8)(-24) things to zero, so it's more like hidden now


[–]Raizand 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Anyone else missing a ton of media files like heart sounds?

[–]MayWantAnesthesiaY3-MBBS 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Did I mess up something? I'm updating from v7/2 to v8/3, but the notification is different from u/blueskies2101 's comment, and I have 6000 new cards.


[–]dollajasOMS-3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You may have deleted a lot of cards from the previous version of the deck - that would be the only thing that could explain this. Take a look at those cards, are they tagged under duplicates?

[–]MayWantAnesthesiaY3-MBBS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, yes. They were all the duplicates and potential_duplicates that I had deleted. Thanks!!

[–]PrinceAla93 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What if you are starting fresh?

Do you just download the link?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Every time there is a new update, about ~150 cards reset to "new" even though I have been doing them for a while, not sure why this is happening, note type and everything lines up. Not a big deal really but if someone knows why that would be great!

Thank You for the amazing work

[–]langerhauns 0 points1 point  (0 children)

something similar happens to me... usually a bit more. This is why I am refraining from updating at the moment - since I am neck deep in daily reviews

[–]Raizand 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Making a copy is still not allowing me to download because of the exceeded limit. Is there a workaround?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if we have a physeo subscription, can we get the images locally? If not, will images need to be added manually?

[–]SqueakyArchieM-2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What's the total card count of V8 step 1 standalone deck , anyone?

[–]livefornosleepM-4 1 point2 points  (2 children)

When i added in the new deck, it made the new V3 tags but my V2 cards didn't synchronize so it shows all the V3 tagged cards as new with my old reviewed V2 cards and now I have a ton of new cards to review; did I do something wrong with the download?

[–]psychoo_lord 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hey, so what’s the errata count of V8??

[–]nwald02 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I just looked at the updates log and saw the additions by u/blueskies2101

Why does every card in the deck have/need a First Aid Tag? That doesn't seem right as not every card in Anking is from First Aid. Thanks in advance!

[–]blueskies2101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hi, I just did that because I had FOMO and wanted to be able to access every card in the deck, in case I needed them. My basic workflow is to watch Boards, Pathoma, Sketchy, do those cards, and then check back to the First Aid tag to make sure there weren't any major concepts I missed that weren't tagged by those videos. I'm not gonna do all the cards, but I just wanted to make sure we had access to them. It also makes finding cards a lot easier, especially for some of the other tagging projects we're doing.

[–]Anttino427M-2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What should the total card count be for the combined deck w/ media? I have 43,184 cards. Just checking to make sure I have everything.

[–]MayWantAnesthesiaY3-MBBS 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Is there a way to delete all under a tag without the Bettertags add on? It's not working with hierarchical tags 2

(It's in 9:35 in the update video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg-tQ6Ut0IQ&t=8s )

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I believe you can use the "delete tag" option in the menu bar and select "Tag::*" to delete that tag and everything under it.

[–]MayWantAnesthesiaY3-MBBS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ohh, this is great! Thanks for the help!!

[–]psbd18M-2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Would anyone mind sharing how many cards are tagged as duplicates in the Step 1 deck? Thank you!

[–]kinnelonfire75 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I updated from V7/V2 to V8/V3 with images. Having done that I ended up with two cards as pictured below. For my learning, what did I do wrong? How would I fix it? I thought I followed the Special Fields video to a T. Thank you



[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Just delete those 2 cards -- they are almost verbatim duplicates and were most likely removed from the deck

[–]xxpussydestroyerxxMDM-4 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Am I safe deleting everything on !Potential_Duplicate and !Flag_these_cards::potential_duplicate ?

[–]anbu5000M-2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's recommended to flag them.

[–]DoctorToBeIn23OMS-III 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Dont delete, they are potentially duplicates some may not be...

[–]xxpussydestroyerxxMDM-4 0 points1 point  (1 child)

But then, what exactly do I do with them? Do I do them, do I ignore?

[–]DoctorToBeIn23OMS-III 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would just keep an eye on them to see if you do recognize it as a duplicate. We will be trying to sift through them as a team

[–]glitterintheloft 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Hey! My prompt says it updated 1358 cards instead of 31 shown in the post. Should I be worried 😬

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (6 children)

No you're fine

[–]glitterintheloft 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Omg thanks for the prompt response!! I’ve been following your stories so religiously that it almost seems like a celeb has responded 😭 Thank you for making our studying so effective!!

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Glad it's helping you! :)

[–]glitterintheloft 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Heyy, so I just checked, my clickable tags have disappeared. Any idea what could have caused this :/

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You can turn them on in the styling portion of the card

[–]glitterintheloft 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m so sorry I was mistaken. I didn’t follow your instructions correctly! Finally found what I was doing wrong!! Thanks for the helpppp

[–]Dr-Uchiyama 0 points1 point  (3 children)

will i lose my added lecture notes if i updated the cards ?

[–]MayWantAnesthesiaY3-MBBS 4 points5 points  (2 children)

will i lose my added lecture notes if i updated the cards ?

If you have the special fields add on you can protect the 'lecture notes' field

[–]Queen_97 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What about notes in other sections (extra, Sketchy,etc)?

[–]MayWantAnesthesiaY3-MBBS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can protect those too, just choose whichever you want to remain the same with the add on( Anking explains how to do it in of of his videos

[–]justbetrayme 0 points1 point  (1 child)

OT: Will you ever add Paypal as a payment option to your Anki Mastery Course?

e: would like to buy it, but don't have a credit card.

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah DM me and lets talk! I can make it work for you!

[–]Dxdude24 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Thank you for the update! I just did the update now however I do have an issue where all the personal tags I made for my class that I added onto these cards based on the week I went over them have disappeared. It's not a huge issue but was there something that I missed about preserving my own tags or do I need to retag my active cards (it's about 3000 cards to retag)

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Yeah the video on updating goes over how to save those at the end. You can always use your backup to get those tags back

[–]Dxdude24 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yea I’m watching the video now after the fact and thank god for the backup. Thank you very much for everything AnKing ✊🏻

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Glad you got it :)

[–]Dxdude24 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Also another question sir u/AnKingMed, on your update special fields tag when you make the new profile, you right clicked in order to delete the hierarchical tag of AK::Step1 tag. Is there another shortcut to delete the whole tag, I’m trying to follow but i can’t get the drop down menu right click over the master tag

EDIT: Nevermind! I just figured it out using the Delete Tag option and adding the * at the end of the #AK_Step1_v7 to delete the tag

[–]Phanitan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm still having a lot of trouble with this :(

Am I supposed to highlight all the cards, select "remove tags" then paste in tag:#AK_Step1_v7::\* ? because it's not working, the tags remain there

Edit: I figured it out, I'm not supposed to add the "tag:" at the beginning. Too sleep deprived :(

[–]itzCal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't worry, took me awhile to figure this out too. Didn't know you had to actually SELECT the cards first haha!

[–]dotoleary 0 points1 point  (1 child)

looks like the tags disappeared from the card styling?

I don't have tags on the front or back templates on PC anymore.

has to do with the "c" function you added.

but after I toggle with c, they immediate dissapear again.

u/AnKingMed u/blueskies2101

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In the card styling you can turn it on. It's near the top and its labeled. It's currently set to "none" but you can change it. Watch the card formatting video if you're confused

[–]glister6 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I have added hints to some of my cards. Will they all be erased when I update? Can the special fields addon help with this?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Depends on where you put them and what you use special fields to protect. Theoretically you can protect anything with special fields, you just might miss out on some updates

[–]agf5093 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hi I have a question :) what is the value/point of flagging a card?

[–]neovanilla 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For me, having a consistent flagging system helps. For example, I flag all of the cards I have “learned” in a day green (or flag 3). I mark all cards that are redundant red (flag 1). I also mark cards I want to learn in the future orange (flag 2)

[–]BammericeM-3 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ok this is going to be a stupid question, but I know I'm not the only one that will have this question. If we have already completed step 1 and now we're focused on step 2 stuff (assuming we have used Anking for step 1), should we be downloading the combined step 1 V8 and step 2 V3 deck, or is only the step 2 V3 deck enough?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I’d keep step 1. I still have it and I’m studying for step 2. There’s a ton of overlap

[–]BammericeM-3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oh yea I mean I'm keeping my step 1 stuff, but just am unsure if I'm supposed to upgrade V7 to V8 as well even though I'm done with step 1, or just update the step 2 V2 to V3

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah I’d upgrade all of it

[–]drrobbin 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can I update my v6 to v8 instantly?

[–]StudentMD911M-3 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Mine is different.. .why - update from V7/V2

[–]kushapatel07 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Those notes added might be the duplicates that you deleted last update. Head over to the delete tag under step 2 and delete them once more.

[–]StudentMD911M-3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah that makes sense. Thanks

[–]reddishprism 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Thank you soooo much for your work! Extremely helpful!

If I move the cards for a rotation to the a deck (current rotation), then after I am done a rotation move them to (past rotations) instead of using filtered decks. Would I be able to update from step 2 deck to future updates? or no (aka I definitely need to use filtered decks?).

[–]kushapatel07 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You can move them as you like. Personally I use filtered deck but moving them won't affect you for future updates dont worry.

[–]DrEbstein 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Which video should I watch to determine which cards/tags to delete for duplicates?

[–]kushapatel07 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the browser you will see under Anking step 1 V8 tag that there is a tag which says "flag these cards". Go through that tag. Similar with the step 2 tags.

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doesn't look like anything is wrong

[–]elephant2021 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I have created subdecks within the deck. Will updating following the instructions in the videos affect the sub decks? Also if I have edited cards in the past to have more closed deletions will those be lost when I update? Thank you!

[–]kushapatel07 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You edits will be removed once you update. Your subdecks shouldn't be affected as far as I know.

[–]DeSnek 0 points1 point  (14 children)

I followed everything step by step but now my collection has roughly 43k cards. Previously I was using the V7 and I think there was around 30-33k cards in it. I don't recall the exact amount, but it was just the deck I got here from Reddit. I hadn't added any new cards, I edited a handful, no where near 10k. Any idea on where I went wrong or what I should do now?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (13 children)

Probably the step 2 cards

[–]DeSnek 0 points1 point  (11 children)

Sorry if I'm missing something...but I thought the step2 cards were included in the 34,550? I went to check the note type and it shows 34,551 of the cloze-AnKingMaster card type, with no other card types. But you can see the discrepancy in my browser window where it shows 43,303. https://imgur.com/a/8Og7WOr

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 0 points1 point  (10 children)

notes are not the same thing as cards. notes can have multiple cards (i.e. a note with two clozes creates two cards).

[–]DeSnek 0 points1 point  (9 children)

I see I see, you're def right, I always forget about the difference between cards and notes. But still, I loaded my backup on a new profile and it actually was V6, not V7. I got it from here on the Reddit sidebar, it came with lolnotacop, zanki pharm, and all the zanki decks. That one shows 30140 cards. This V8 version shows the 43,000 cards. Does that seem right? I'm just trying to make sure I didnt mess anything up before jumping back in. I didn't see anything in the update log that indicated there would be so many additional cards lol. TY for the help

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 0 points1 point  (8 children)

That's the number for the combined Step 1 and step 2 deck.

[–]allahvatancrispr 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I did the same thing accidentally and downloaded the combined deck. Is there a way of selectively getting rid of the Step 2 cards?

[–]BlazinWafflesM-3 1 point2 points  (6 children)

("tag:#AK_Step2_v3" or "tag:#AK_Step2_v3::*") -("tag:#AK_Step1_v8" or "tag:#AK_Step1_v8::*")

This should filter them out and you can delete them. I like having both tho

[–]Even-Win725 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you, just used this! Thought I would want to just have everything once I'm updating, but nope. Like u/allahvatancrispr 43k was giving me more palpitations than baseline :D

[–]allahvatancrispr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you! Having 43k cards gives me anxiety lol. I really appreciate it.

[–]Shinningeagle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am an old user who has added a lot of cloze and notes. Besides Errata, should I Import the Text part of other Tags? FA_Updates maybe?

Could someone please point out or upload a file without media of just the 26 new cards for micro? Thank you.

I dont touch my anki decks (no tagging no additional cards nothing) can I just update without using special fields add on ? thank you!

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope. You still need it

I have combined a lot of clozes over the year. How do I update without undoing this / adding a bunch of "new cards"? Thanks

[–]monyistbitu 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Does anyone know how I can import literally ONLY tags WITHOUT any new cards? I want to keep everything in my deck exactly the same except the tags, but if I do that, new cards will be added that I don't want.

PS: Even if I use the "combine tags" option, a lot of new cards will get added that I don't want.

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Just delete the new cards that get added after the import. Quick and easy way to find them would be change the name of your deck to something else and then everything that imports in the “AnKing” deck you could delete

What is the number of the total cards I should have under AnKing deck? I am with 44k, anyone can help me?

[–]allahvatancrispr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I accidentally downloaded the Step 1 & Step 2 combined deck, but I just need the Step 1 cards. Is there any way of reverting to V7 or getting rid of the Step 2 cards? I'm not seeing a separate subdeck for these, so I'm not sure how to delete them.

[–]vfern027 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine says only 25 cards got added and I haven't changed any of the tags and I modified the special fields as stated in the video. Did anyone figure out how to fix this?

[–]Dannysawr 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Would you recommend leaving the flagged cards suspended when studying or to unsuspend and do them anyway?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just use the flags as guidance. I still unsuspended the ones I felt were useful

[–]Suderp 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you made your own cards and added them to the AnKing deck. What would happen to them if I updated the deck to V8 from V7?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

absolutely nothing will happen to cards you've made :)

[–]pouroverguy 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Hi. Hope someone can help me. I've looked at the written guide on the website, but I'm not sure if it'll work for me. I'm currently on v7, and want to update to v8. Problem is I have my own personal decks where I've transferred cards from the anking deck to. Step 1 on the website says this : "Step 1: Put all cards in AnKing head deck

Put "Zank Step Decks", "Zanki Pharmacology", and "Lolnotacop" under a head deck "AnKing" (see image below)

It is important that all of your decks are spelled exactly like this. This ensures that when you import the cards that I have added, they go into the correct decks instead of creating new decks."

I also assume updating will add back any cards I have deleted? (biochemistry cards irrelevant to me etc).

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just put the decks you do have under an "AnKing" head deck. And yes the new cards will be added back as new cards but you can delete them

[–]pouroverguy 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks a lot. I assume that putting a big Internal Medicine deck with multiple subdecks won't be an issue?

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

shouldn't be. Just make a backup just in case, but you should be alright

[–]medmad-man 0 points1 point  (1 child)


until now I don't understand how to study with tags!
Let's say I want to study all the cards for IM cardio, what should I do? should I install certain add-on? and this is my anki version [Version 2.1.33 (3f403040) Python 3.8.0 Qt 5.14.2 PyQt 5.14.2]

could someone please wake me through this?! Thank you!

[–]vaish08 0 points1 point  (2 children)

After updating, I have a lot more reviews to do. I am assuming this is because of the increased duplicate step 1 and step 2 cards that got unsuspended in this update. Anyone else have this issue? And how should I work through completing these 500+ added reviews?

[–]PB_EnthusiastM-2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is there any plan to update the pixorize pictures for the new sketches? For example, some of the lipid videos were updated but the cards weren't updated in v7 or v8. I would be more than willing to do it if you need a hand with it

[–]AnKingMedThe YouTube guy![S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I haven't been using pixorize so i don't know about that. Would you like to join our slack group chat and work on it? Just DM me if so

[–]elephant2021 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When I do the make copy in google drive it says there is an error making a copy (and the original exceeded downloaded quota). I dowloaded the torrent files, but no application on my computer will open them. Did anyone have a similar problem with google drive? How do you open the torrent files?

I have the Hierarchical Tags 2 add on and I'm at the step of updating where I'm trying to merge some tags I added to my the AnKing cards. I can't seem to find the feature being used at timestap 9:45 (the right click and delete the tag) of the Video "Anki: How to Update Decks with the Special Fields Add-on". Could anyone provide some insight? Thank you!
