According to AnkiDroid (2.16.x) and Desktop documentations, the search term (is:review) should result in “reviews (both due and not due) and lapsed cards”; but the filter doesn’t include my lapsed cards when I search the home deck (in the card browser).
I checked and I have no buried or suspended cards; also I have emptied all filtered decks so that all cards are available in the home deck.
Is there any new change in the documentations (regarding search by card state) that not applied yet? Please explain why filter “is:review” doesn’t behave as described in the documentation.
BTW I’m using AnkiDroid 2.16.5 (downloaded from GitHub).
The card in question is suspended and its Card Info page shows it in Learn (not Relearn).
In my case, I manually used Forget on this card, then it went into learning, then I manually suspended it for some reason (it only has one lapse, so it didn’t hit the leech threshold). It was suspended quite some time ago, so I don’t remember the details of why I did that.
I have always understood that the “Type” listed on a line is the card’s state at when it was shown, then it was given that Rating, setting that new Interval and Ease.
So I would interpret that as:
card in Learn, which was then rated 3,
resulting in card in Learn, which was then rated 3,
resulting in card in Review, which was then rated 1,
resulting in card in Relearn, which was then rated 1 …
That’s about the only difference I can see. My version is Play Store. Other than that your review history seems similar enough to mine, so it’s not clear why you would be getting different search results.
Well, again, technically it could be in learning rather than relearning.
Like in my earlier message mentioned, you can have prop:lapses>0 is:learn -is:review
bring up cards that are in learning for the first time despite having past lapses, as long as there was a Forget somewhere along that way that reset it to new without resetting its lapses count to zero.
But anyway, from your card history, that doesn’t seem to be what’s happening for your two cards.
Yes, it has a scary warning with it – but I (and a lot of other folks) have been using it for 6m or more (since 2.15.x, even), with zero issues. And I think it’s still anticipated to be the only option in the next version.
In fact, one of the main devs told me (on Discord) last June:
Tbh, it’s pretty stable, a few crashes during syncing and reviewing if you switch between screens … When I’m back and 2.16 is out, the first thing I’ll be doing will be to disable and remove the ‘old’ backend and guarantee that we’ll get the ‘new’ backend as 2.17
I think if that were the case, then your Card Info wouldn’t show “Relearn” as the type for any of them. Since you obviously haven’t done a “Forget” or another Manual adjustment on those cards, I think you’re right that one of them looks like it is about to start the relearning steps, and the other is in the relearing steps.
