Hey there. I´m using Anki 2 for studying japanese
. Therefore I ask myself Hiragana- Meaning and Meaning- Hiragana. It´s easy to make this if you follow the rules of the instruction video. Furthermore i also wanna to type in the answere and this works only for Hiragana- Meaning. So if Anki shows me the meaning i got no field for typing in the answere, but anki shows me this: Type answer: unknown field Front.

Any Idea why? btw. I´m using Windows 8

    I think you have blindly filled in "Front" instead of editing the template
    to contain {{type:*whatever the field name of the field on the front of the
    card is*}}. If that is not it, please post screenshots of the Fields and
    Cards windows on a card that doesn't work.

    You should not put a space after the ':' character.
