How to upload tags from old version of Anking deck to V12

Some upperclassmen tagged the V9 of the Anking deck with our course curriculum. I have V12 of the Anking deck and was wondering if there is a way to upload the upperclassmen deck without changing the current V12 cards to the older version of the Anking deck? I want the class tags but don’t want to change my current version of the Anking cards.

You’re not at SGU are you?

I need to make a tutorial for this but here’s the steps:

  1. Export one card from the v12 anking note
  2. Import v9 into a new profile
  3. Import the one v12 card. Delete it. (You just import it for the note type)
  4. In the browser select all notes, then right click and change note type. Change to the new AnKingOverhaul (AnkiHub/AnKingMed) note type
  5. Delete all other tags and name your school tags to something obvious, everything all under one head tag
  6. Change the deck name to something silly and recognizable (you’ll see why later)
  7. Export
  8. Go to your main profile (probably good to backup at this point)
  9. Download the special fields addon. Go to tools->special fields and click the “import tags” button
  10. Import the file

You’ll now have the tags and can create an optional tag group on AnkiHub and then upload them!

If you run into issues or need someone else to do this for you let me know


No, I’m not at SGU.

Thank you so much for this! I’ll give it a try!

Let me know if you need help or run into issues!

Hi there, when I get to step 9 I can’t find the “import tags” button. What am I missing?

It’s right above %%keep%%

I thought this would open an import window. Now I see it is just to update the settings. Thanks!
