I have a question. Normally by adding new notes Anki checks automatically if there are any doubles. Recently it seems that it doesn't do this anymore. How can I correct this?

    Duplicate checking depends on the note type you have selected - perhaps you have a different note type selected to the existing content?

    Yes, now I see that was happing. How this could happen I don’t know. Originally the notes were in Dutch (kaart 1), because note type was basis. But now it is in English: card 1 and basic.
    Thank you so much!

    Is it possible to change card type?

    Greeting, Marc

    Hi Marc,

    You can select the cards in the Browse screen, then use Notes>Change Note Type.
