This addon is interfering with the scheduler. Here is a thread about the exact problems it is causing and how it was solved. https://old.reddit.com/r/Anki/comments/ca9pv4/something_is_off_about_steps_in_anki_21_what_is_it/

    Hey there!

    I'm the creator of that addon. I happened to find this page through luck, but thanks for bringing this bug to my attention.

    I will make a note on the addon page, but I'm not sure of a solution.

    Update: I uploaded a fix.

    Problem was with keyboard shortcut remapping not being as expected, rather than interfering with scheduler.

    Hi I'm struggling to configure the old ctrl + Enter mode (that adds the card into the deck) into the current (updated) add-on. I love the current concept, and it is working great, I'm just not very skilled at manipulating the programmed controls to benefit my needs

    Hey Tanner, do you mean that you'd like to change the shortcut for adding (finalizing) a card? If so, the addon doesn't have that option.

    Thanks for the quick reply Joseph,

    No, I was just simply trying to use the normal shortcut for adding/finalizing a card, but am presented with this error message when using the add-on.

    So once I try to use the ctrl + enter shortcut, and get that error message, my Anki no longer lets me add cards until I re-start the app, and disable the add-on. Even just clicking add is disabled

    Thanks for posting that screenshot--that helps a lot!

    I think this will solve the problem.
    1. Open Anki to the home screen.
    2. Click Tools on the menu bar all the way on the top of the screen.
    3. Click Manage Note Types.
    4. A list of note types shows up. Rename one of them as Basic and another one as Cloze. Make sure there's only one called Basic and only one called Cloze. There's a button for renaming on the side.
    5. Quit Anki by pressing Command and Q. Then reopen Anki and try adding cards.

    Let me know the results please!

    Yikes. Sorry for the trouble--it's odd that I can't replicate this. Before I go ahead and try to rewrite the code, can you try one more thing?

    1. Go to Tools on the top of the home screen and then click Add-ons.
    2. Click on Godmode from the list and then the delete button.
    3. After deleting, click get Addons and paste in: 1508677152
    4. Quit Anki by pressing Command and Q. Then restart.
    5. Try adding cards with the add button or the shortcut Command and A.

    Fingers crossed.

    Hey guys, I was able to replicate the problem and came up with a fix. Just download the newest version of the add-on and restart Anki.

    Looking forward to hearing everything is now working!
