A matter of translation. However = contudo, entretanto, todavia, no entanto.

So when I add this word to my ANKI flashcards, do I put "No entanto" = "However" or just "entanto" = "However" ?

Yes, same here. I see it more like 'still' in this example :D

We have many ways of saying this: nonetheless, he's my father nevertheless, he's my father even so, he's my father however, he is my father still, he is my father after all, he's my father

I was marked wrong for putting 'he's still my father' and the correct solution was shown as: He's but, my father. Where did that come from?

I think this an attempt at "He is, but, my father." where a missing or misplaced comma adds to the confusion - like He eats, shoots and leaves

Would "alias (not too sure of the spelling)" work here? Or does it mean something different than "however"?

Shouldnt it accept, "daddy?"

Daddy = Papai

Are there situations where "mas" (but) is interchangeable with "no entanto" (however/but)? Mas ele é meu pai vs. No entanto ele é meu pai ? How are these two words used differently in context? Thanks!

They are the same, but "Mas" is much more common, specially in spoken language.

Yes, "he is my father, however" was incorrectly marked as wrong by Duo. "However, he is my father" would work too. When spoken, the emphasis would be on the word "is" in that formulation.
