If not; why not? No, it does not. Anki pre-composes and stores the card template with the fact data for each and every card. I called this storage “cache”, and it takes roughly template_size × number_of_cards. For review, unpatched Anki takes the card from the “cache”, patched Anki takes the template and fills in the blanks. The face-lifted deck has an empty “cache”. A DB-check may rebuild it, but would pump up the deck again. > > 2) > > Is all statistic information still available for your deck? Is the information > still correct?

I’m pretty sure any supported mobile device can take a text (the template) and replace some parts of it with some other text (the fact data).
