Hi, I’ve been using Anki for years to study all kinds of things! I seem to remember being able to increase the new card and review limit with no problem. Now when I go into options and do that, my study session will still come to an end (the Congratulations message will pop up). No matter what options group I put a deck into, or how high I make the new card number and review number, my study session will come to an end at a rate that (I admittedly do not count) I know is lower than the numbers I set. Any help is appreciated.
Are you sure you have more new (not buried) cards? I believe the number of maximum cards to review can show more cards only when there are more cards with particular due date. Otherwise it doesn’t change the number of cards to review in a particular day.
