I had some media in a subdirectory. Moved it to the main directory.

Exported the deck to a text file and edited out all the subdirectory paths.

Imported the text file: "0 notes updated" Clicked 'Edit' and saw that image field still had the subdirectory. Changed it there in the HTML and closed the edit window. opened again—unchanged.

Used chown -R to ensure that my account owns the entire ~/Library/Application\ Support/Anki2 but it persists. In the file select, MacOS allows me to view the beginning of the file before selecting it. Verified there that I am importing the edited file.

Problem persists after optimizing database. And, it said the AnkiWeb deck was incompatible, so I UPloaded to Ankiweb. When I exited from Anki after doing nothing except the Import, it said incompatible again.

    Well, I do not understand this at all. The import said nothing changed. Looking at the card edit fields confirmed it.

    But after uploading the deck TO Ankiweb the SECOND time and re-launching Anki (also the second time), the changes appeared!

    If you find it happens again and you can tell me a set of steps to reproduce the problem, please let me know.

    That sounds like quite a challenge, but maybe it will happen. :-)
