I’m a long time Anki user (over ten years now). I love Anki! And rely on it a lot for foreign language study. However, I’ve recently come across a somewhat annoying bug.
My decks all have their new card settings set to “sequential (oldest first)”. However, I’m finding that sometimes, more recently added cards are coming up before others that were added before them. When I check the “due” column in browser I find that indeed, the numbers are not sequential.
I found a fix for this, and that is to change the settings from “sequential” to “random”, and then go “check database”, before changing the settings back to “sequential” and then running another “check database”. That puts the cards in the right order, and checking the “due” column in browser confirms that. However, it’s kind of annoying having to do that constantly and with multiple decks. Does anyone know a fix for this?
Also just attaching a screenshot from browser. Here you can see that the cards I added today are due sooner for review than the ones I added yesterday, despite my current settings being on “sequential (oldest first)”.
