Longer options after forgetting a card

When I forget a card, sometimes I realize that it’s going to be rather easy to remember, or perhaps I edit the front a bit because I didn’t design the card well, but I don’t really want to restart the card with one day. I’ve set things up so that after I hit “hard”, the next time the card displays “easy” is two days. But I would like easy to be longer, perhaps 5 or 7 days. Does anyone know how to do this?

You need to differentiate between new / learning cards and review cards. The buttons have different effects in both types of cards:

Thanks all for your suggestions.

Perhaps this is the statement in the Anki Manual that is preventing me from accomplishing what I’m trying to do: “when cards are in relearning, the “Easy” button boosts the interval by 1 day.”

What I’m trying to accomplish: When I’m relearning a card, I want the Easy button to be some larger number, perhaps 5 or 7 or 10.

(Why, you might ask? I have been using Anki for language learning for about 6 years now and I have many cards with extremely long intervals, 5, 10, even 13yrs. Sometimes one of these cards comes up, and I want to review the card [perhaps I didn’t quite remember it but answered with a different form, or a synonym, or I have learned more nuance about the word and wat to review it…] but I don’t want to start from the beginning with a 1 or 2 day delay. Thus, I’d like the Easy button to be some number higher than 2.)

You might experiment with the “New interval” setting. Not exactly what you’re looking for, but a setting other than the default 0.00 could work for you.

Also, you might try increasing the default “Easy bonus” settings, but this will only work after you’ve re-learned the card.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn’t realize that you’re actually suggesting a feature.

Thanks for the suggestions. No apologies needed - a solution or a suggestion, both good. The “New Interval” set to 10% is close enough to what I’m looking for. Thanks!
