You are right. Didn’t know that’s note creation column.
Card creation time sequence is the same as card ID ascending sequence.
But if I sort by Note creation time column, it’s again the same as card’s creation time (and card ID ascending) sequence. How can that be?
BTW to sort by Note creation time I use Advanced Browser addon so that may be its internal thing, not Anki’s own.
Also, when I forget my cards (or reset progress on Ankidroid), i.e. make them new cards again, and begin to study them - they appear in the order the Created column sorts them! (i.e. in spite of Card ID sequence).
The setting for the deck is also (as for the filtered deck) in order added (or oldest cards first in the new deck settings panel), but in fact, they display in different order.
I need this for Cloze Overlapper cards, to appear in required sequence. But I don’t want to every time reset them to new status and lose the ‘about right’ learning order and stats.
Of course for the normal cards this playing with order is counterproductive. But Cloze Overlapper (as well as Cloze Anything, Cloze Hide All etc similar addons) sets of cards are specific, they are more like a single meta-card, so it’s important that they are not torn apart and even randomized.
Below is the screenshot to explain (hopefully) the situation:
PS: what is the recommended way to get such cards displayed during study in their logical order (i.e. cloze-ol 1, then …2 etc to …21), without resetting and losing learning info?
