Hey Damien!

I’ve been a bit lazy the last month but now I’m back with the latest beta:)

The bug that only one learning card gets shown at the bottom sometimes is still there.

Another bug which is there for a while now:
For cards with a picture on the front: when I tap to see the back side of the picture it flashes a bit. And I am not sure but I think it actually shows the content of the back side during that flash. The flash does not happen every time. I made a little video to show you.
It’s best to see at the flag of Angola.

Another thing: I’d like to help translating. The German version is quite a mess atm. How can I join?

    Thanks Fin, I'll investigate those issues. And thank you for your offer to help out with the translations! I'll send along an invite. More info is available here:

    Hey, thx for the Link!

    Another thing I forgot to mention:

    If cards get buried, the card count diesnt directly update. That’s alright. But what I noticed: Let’s say the blue number at the bottom shows 42 new cards. When I go to the statistic page via the top bar, the unseen stat shows 30 unseen cards. I then click on back to get into the study screen again and it still says 42. only of I go back to the deck screen it finally says 30

    So it would be nice if a visit of the stats screen (and basically every other screen as well) would update the numbers in the study screen

    IIRC, the main reason it's done this way at the moment is to avoid the current card potentially changing when returning, as it can do when the queue is rebuilt. Certainly room for improvement here :-)

    This comment was split into a new private discussion: Beta stuff <3

    If that’s causing problems then you just could not update in the stats screen. that would do the trick i guess.

    While we’re at it: What about a separation between buried and suspended in the stats? That would be nice.

    Hi Fin,

    The graphs are something I'd like to rework at one point, and I think that would be good time to split these up as well.

    Back on mobile i have a simple bug and a weird one.

    The simpfle one: When im in the stats screen and press the home button and open anki again, im of course still in the stats screen but the colours of all the graphs are lighter for some reason.

    Same thing when im revisiting the screen from the lock screen.

    Weird bug:

    When you look at my stats in my spanish deck you see that ive kept a streak the last few days always adding 20 or 25 new cards. Thats correct. On the 27. i had way more rewiew cards to do than the days before. That was odd but i did them. Then, on the 28. i had no review cards and no new cards due for some reason. There were just some learning cards due.
    I did those and today there are new cards, learning cards and review cards due, everything seems fine again.

    I am on the same pace with new cards as a friend of mine and i compared the stats and i indeed have 20 new cards less introduced than him.

    I have an idea what caused this: Often i did my reviews between 3 and 4 AM. I have new day starts at 4 AM. There could be a hickup there.

    Hi Fin,

    I couldn't reproduce the first issue - is it still a problem with the latest beta?

    For the second issue, please force a full sync to ensure all devices are identical, then give this a try:

    so i finally did that debug console thing.

    This was the output, just for protocol:

    >>> mw.col.reset()
    ... old =
    ... mw.col.conf["newTimezone"] = True
    ... mw.col.setMod()
    ... mw.col.reset()
    ... new =
    ... print(f"elapsed days was {old}, is now {new}")
    elapsed days was 568, is now 568

    So Ill see the next time what happens when i do anki reviews stupidly late :p Might take me a while.

    Cheers :-)

    Hi Fin,

    There were some corner cases found in the previous implementation, so I've had another attempt at it. After updating to the latest computer beta and AnkiMobile, please give the updated steps a try and let me know if they don't resolve your problems:

    Actually an issue has been found - please hold off on this until I get back to you.

    i did actually use the latest beta on both desktop and mobile earlier today when i tested that.

    And its actually 3 am right now (i couldnt wait to test :p) and i am seeing the cards of tommorow (the next day starts at is set at 4 am.)

    So nothing changed there.

    For the other bug with the colours in the stats screen: The bug is still there but i noticed that in dark mode the colours actually get darker after revisiting the app while in light mode they get lighter. Ill attach a video showing that.

    A weird thing happended to me...

    I was updating a friends profile on my computer after both the profile on my computer and his android phone got in sync. I added a new deck on computer then and moved some cards in there. I did nothing that gave me the messega that a full sync was necessary.
    I synced and told him to sync on his phone. He did and there was a error message that he would need to do a full sync. That was the first thing which i didnt understand. But anyways, i told him to upload as he was reviewing at that time and i didnt want him to loose anything. So he uploaded. Ater that there was the new deck on his phone. How can that be? I dont understand that. We didnt loose anything, so this is not too important but i just dont understand what was happening there and am curious :-)

    Ok, updated instructions on

    Please make sure you're on 2.0.56beta2 and 2.1.17 before following them.

    I can't explain what happened in post 12 - it's not possible the friend accidentally chose to download instead of upload? Or perhaps they already synced the deck, and then the error happened after that?

    >>> mw.col.reset()
    ... old =
    ... mw.col.sched.setCreationOffset()
    ... mw.col.reset()
    ... new =
    ... print(f"elapsed days was {old}, is now {new}")
    elapsed days was 573, is now 573

    The syncing thing... It cant be the case that he accidentally downloaded as he was reviewing during that time and would have noticed that he did the same green cards again... He always has a close eye on the card counts.

    New crucial bug!

    The new Mobile beta doesn’t allow for new cards. The blue number is always 0 no matter what.

    Same thing on desktop apparently.

    Same thing after I downgraded to 2.15 on desktop. Don’t know how to downgrade on mobile though.

    Would be nice if you could fix this today as I would like to keep my streak.. <3

    I can actually create new cards which get shown.

    And custom study does also work.

    I don't think this is related to the new code - you have the new/day limit on both subdecks set to 0.
