Dear Anki support
First of all many thanks for this fantastic software which I am using on daily basis (I have purchased the iPhone app and very happy with it). I have a question:
I have an old medical science deck with some cards tagged as "Drug". Now I want to create a new deck and transfer all cards tagged "Drug" to this new deck. It is nice to be able to do this without losing the cards tagged "Drug" in the old deck.
Many thanks
Kind Regards

    In Anki 2, cards can only be in one deck at a time. But if you move them
    and have them all tagged "Drug" (and no other cards tagged Drug somewhere
    else), you can always search for these cards later and move them back into
    another deck.

    You can search for tag:drug in the browser, select all the cards, and then use the 'change deck' option to move those cards to a different deck.
