Issue regarding AnkiDroid 2.15 update and Hanping integration (WORKAROUND AVAILABLE)

Post by hanping »

AnkiDroid Flashcards released a big 2.15.0 update yesterday. This causes a problem reviewing cards in the Hanping deck. Luckily this can be easily fixed by adding a field to the Hanping note type.

Hanping Chinese:
  1. Launch AnkiDroid
  2. Tap top-right (3 vertical dots) icon to bring up the overflow menu
  3. Tap Manage note types
  4. Tap Hanping Chinese Type to edit Hanping Chinese's note type
  5. Tap top-right + icon to add a new field to the note type
  6. Type Jyutping and tap OK
  7. Return to the main AnkiDroid screen and check the problem is fixed
Hanping Cantonese:
  1. Launch AnkiDroid
  2. Tap top-right (3 vertical dots) icon to bring up the overflow menu
  3. Tap Manage note types
  4. Tap Hanping Cantonese Type to edit Hanping Cantonese's note type
  5. Tap top-right + icon to add a new field to the note type
  6. Type Pinyin and tap OK
  7. Return to the main AnkiDroid screen and check the problem is fixed
For those using Hanping Anki note types and card templates created several years ago, you may also get a similar error regarding a "Notes" field. In which case, please add that too.

Note: AnkiDroid 2.15.0 and 2.15.1 contained a bug which resulted in Hanping's export-to-Ankidroid creating duplicate notes. This has been fixed in AnkiDroid 2.15.2. If you need to remove duplicates, then you can try this to remove all recently added notes:
  1. Launch AnkiDroid
  2. Select the Hanping deck
  3. Card browser (Navigation Drawer)
  4. Search icon (Top bar)
  5. Enter "added:1" to search for cards added in the last 1 day (change value accordingly!)
  6. Tap top-right (3 vertical dots) icon to bring up the overflow menu
  7. Select all
  8. (again) Tap top-right (3 vertical dots) icon to bring up the overflow menu
  9. Delete notes
