Not getting the definition when syncing flashcards to anki

    When I try to set up Pleco so that it sends the created flashcards to ankidroid it works perfectly except that in the anki flashcard the definition turns up as just a blank when I try to study the card. If I go into anki cardbrowser and click on the card, the definition looks something like "<plecoentry c="00000000" d="50414345" e="017a0300" x="-1"/>"

    Has anyone seen this before and hopefully solved it?

    What I did when I tried to set it up was:
    1. Flashcard system = ankidroid
    2. Chose card deckare
    3. Default new card model (word) = basic and released (for some reason anki has two to chose from, I have tried both, same resultat. I also tried just using Basic but still, same result)
    4. Configure card models -> basic and released ->
    4.1 no duplicate checking
    4.2 frontside = definition (tried both with and without example)
    4.3 backside = traditional hanzi and mandarin (pinyin w/tonemark no change to spaceing)
    5. Add a flashcard
    6 go to ankidroid, see that a card is added but there is not definition shopping on the frontside, it's just blank. (When I put definition on backside, the backside is blank instead)

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry about that - bug that was in the wild for a few hours today; already fixed in 3.2.42, if you don't see that in your Google Play updates tab yet check back in a few hours and it should show up then.

    Oh, thanks, unlucky timing by me. It works after the update as you said.

    It occurs to me today, exactly the same. The definition part missed.
    1. Full Name: New Century English-Chinese Dictionary, 1st edition
    2. Pleco Version 3.2.43
    I tried it with other E-C dictionaries, and the result is OK.
    So probably there is some problem with this dictionary.

    Some new dictionaries don't allow definitions to be exported outside of Pleco - NEC is one of them. We should probably put up an error about that when you try to use them to make Anki cards.

    thx for your reply. I changed to the build-in flashcards system. :)
