Separating the review of front and back sides of new cards

Hi all,

I want to separate the reviews of a new card, so that it gives me the front and the back on different days.

As you can see from the screenshot, ‘bury related cards until the next day’ is checked, but every day, the 2 new cards that Anki gives me are always the front and back of the same card. I want it to give me the front of one, and the back of another.

I’m concerned with new cards here – older cards work fine. I’m sure in an older iteration of Anki this used to happen but something seems to have altered (possibly inadvertantly by me).

I tried messing around with ‘reposition’ in the main browser, but any action on a new card seems to apply to both front and back. I also wonder/hope there’s a more intuitive way than having to go through and alter manually.

I’ve searched the forum but I couldn’t find anything related to this – apologies if there’s something lurking somewhere.

My thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

The behaviour you describe sounds like how Anki should be behaving with burying enabled - when you review one card of a note, the other cards, if new, should be buried until the next day.

Thanks for the reply.

I restored default settings and then rechecked the box and it seems to have sorted it. Very wierd, but pleased it seems to be resolved.
