I can open anki without error and use it as normal to Study and to Browse. However, when I Add or Edit a card, anki closes with a segmentation fault. Downgrading the qt packages that were upgraded allows anki to work again.

Details attached.

Additional info:
* package version(s) -- anki 2.1.15-1
* config and/or log files etc. -- attached
* link to upstream bug report, if any --

Steps to reproduce:

Open anki. Open a deck and select Add. Or Study and then Edit the card you are working with.
   anki.txt (14.5 KiB)
This task depends upon

I also have the same problem. This bug report did not tag the Anki package, so I hope a moderator/TU could update so that Johannes Löthberg may be notified.

Can you still reproduce this? Because I never had this issue.

Also, if you are able to reproduce it, you wouldn't happen to have a 4K monitor?

No, I can not still reproduce this error. (And I do not have a 4K monitor).

The problem existed when Qt version increased to 5.14.0-3. I thought I tested it when Qt was updated (to 5.14.1?) but I can't find that in my Pacman log, so maybe I didn't.

After reading your comment, I reinstalled anki 2.1.15-1. It pulled in Qt 5.14.2 (and related files) and the problem seems to be resolved.

Thanks for looking into this. Much appreciated!
