    You've accidentally modified your cloze note type. Please click Edit, then Cards, and add '{{cloze:Text}}' to the front and back template.

    What if I changed the template to what you suggested and it is still giving me that error message?

    1. What are the contents of your Front/Back cards? (After opening the Edit window, click on the Cards... button to show the Front and Back templates)
    2. What are the contents of your card fields?
    3. You can try running Tools > Check Database, Tools > Check Media... and Tools > Empty Cards...

    Try installing the latest version: https://apps.ankiweb.net and running Tools > Check Database, Tools > Check Media... and Tools > Empty Cards...

    What is the HTML contents of the Text field (you can see the HTML by pressing Ctrl+Shift+X when selecting the Text field)?

    Here is what I have. Also, I had to download the alternate version for a Mac because my computer is older but I have the most up to date version of that.

    You have {{cloze:Text}} on the card, but the field is named "text". You either need to change the field to Text, or update the template to use text instead of Text.
