wrap text when typing in text

some of my answers are really long, so I was wondering if I can wrap a text field instead of going into the horizontal but rather more vertical?

    You can use this CSS on your .card class:


    .card {
        font-family: KanjiStrokeOrders;
        font-size: 20px;
        color: black;
        text-align: left;
        align: center;
        max-width: 800px;
        margin: auto;
        margin-top: 12px;

    thanks for reply. well i added

        max-width: 800px;
        margin: auto;

    to my styling (shared between cards) but tying in the text doesn't make it go in the vertical. I mean instead of typing in 1 long line for my answer, would like be possible to have it entered within a max-width so that I can still see my answers at a glance?

    If the text you have the enter on typing answer is bigger than the type answer width, it means your answer is too big and should be broken into smaller questions/answers

    thanks!! yes I understand now.

    well bummer got to redo all my reverse cards and make them cloze deletions!

    Is there any fast way to just 'copy' 2 specify fields into 1 fields in a new cloze card?

    1. Backup your collection (your Anki directory on your local computer), see Managing Files and Your Collection
    2. And try using the addon Advanced Copy Fields or see How to merge fields when changing note type?
