After upgrading to the new version of Anki a few weeks back, I was miffed to see that the Copy notes add-on had been grayed out as incompatible. After mentioning it to the developers, the issue was resolved and it was reactivated, but now when I try to use it, I get an error message.

To reproduce:
1. Open the card browser in Anki
2. Click a card in the list
3. Choose "Note Copy" from the "Edit" menu

This is the error message given by Anki:

Debug info:

    The extension now works with no error messages again :)
