Hi everyone, I’m a bit of an Anki noob. I’ve been using it for a while now with a pretty basic understanding to aid in my language learning. Recently I’ve been wanting to mix up my review cards for my two different decks (kanji and a sentence-based vocab deck) to help ensure that my ability to recall doesn’t grow too dependent on me reviewing one before or after the other. From what I’ve read, the 2.1 Scheduler has the solution I’m looking for, but it’s raised some concerns that I was hoping to have cleared before I make the change.
The first is more a question about parent decks. Previously my two decks were their own completely unique decks, so I’m a little confused, when I review all due cards through the parent deck, do the reviewed cards follow their already established rules from their own decks? Or do they follow the parent deck’s rules? I can’t imagine them following the parent deck, but then I feel like there would be no real reason for the parent deck to have rules in the first place, especially since changes made to it say they affect all sub-decks.
My second question is about the scheduler itself. When I was looking into updating, it said that enabling it would reset any cards in learning, clear filtered decks, and change the scheduler. Does this essentially mean that it will completely reset all of my decks? I assume it wouldn’t change any factors or other deck options, but I felt like this was something I really didn’t want to take a chance on.
I apologize if these questions might seem a little dumb, but for whatever reason I’m struggling to wrap my head around it and figured I’d much rather be safe than sorry, so any help is greatly appreciated!
