The cards are presented in French and the answer on the back is English. i would like the cards presented in English (back first) with the front of the cards, French, to be the answer. How (very specifically please) can I make this change?
You should use the
Basic (and reversed) note type, as described here.
To change your existing go in the Browser, select the notes you want to change, then right click, Change Note Type, and select
Basic (and reversed).
It sounds like you just want to flip all the cards. You can do that with the Flip button. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnbKwHEQ1mA&yt:cc=on
