Anki not showing answers.

Hi All,
Me and a couple of other people were having this issue.
“Is anyone having an issue with Anki where even when you press space bar to view an answer, it doesn't pop up? It only shows after I select something on the screen (eg. highlighting something with the mouse). It's seems pretty weird because the anki screen will flash very very briefly so it knows that I clicked spacebar too.” -from

No one was able to solve it, so asking here if anybody knows what’s wrong.

    Thanks, it worked. There was a new update of a deck we all used, so a bunch of us updated anki, causing the problem for all of us at once. Have a good day!
