    You posted this privately, so the add-on author won't be able to see it - would you like me to make it public?

    Hi there! I'm the developer of the Redesign add-on. I haven't had time to update the add-on to work with newer versions of Anki.

    Fortunately, you can use Anki 2.1.20 or lower and the add-on will work! Other add-ons that affect the main screen may need to be disabled as well.
