    I am having this exact same error message on the MacOS app. Happens whenever I add a tag while within a study session.

    Hey Damien,

    As best as I can describe it, if I was editing a card while in a study
    session and added tags, it would trigger the error message about half the
    time. Now it never seems to occur and I can no longer reproduce it.

    Hope that helps,
