Hi, AFAIK, Anki 2 only supports only one {{type:...}} per card. I wonder whether it is because of technical difficulties, or of use cases. In my case, i am learning Swedish nouns, which has 4 forms (each noun is either singular/plural and either indefinite/definite), thus I would like to have the ability to type in all 4 forms separately (i read that we can overcome this feature request by joining multiple type answers into one single, but that is not exactly what i wanted.

Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, this is unlikely to change in the near future. Multiple answers are against the minimum information principle (http://www.supermemo.com/articles/20rules.htm) and are impractical to input on mobile devices. If you wish to practice typing the different tenses separately, you'll need to set Anki up to create a typing card for each tense.

    Thank you for explanation. I will try to adapt my cards against the 20 rules.
