Anki inconveniently adds reversed cards to the end of the new card queue

I have downloaded a shared deck of 500 notes to learn hebrew. the cards are hebrew to English. but I also want reversed cards ( English to Hebrew)
The problem is when I modified the note to produce reverse cards, they were added to the end of the new cards queue and will not be asked until I am done learning the 500 hebrew to English cards. This is inconvenient. Does any one know How I should put the English to Hebrew cards right after their Hebrew to English counterpart ( in the same note ) in the new cards queue?

It crossed my mind that I should reset card times using this add on:
But the problem is that the deck that I have downloaded is ordered by lessons and I want to learn easy words first I do not want to completely destroy the order but rather I want the reversed cards to be asked the day after the front cards of the same note.

I have asked the same question in this thread but since this was the wrong forum I asked the question here too.

    When you add new card types after the fact, the newly created cards will have later due numbers. You can correct this by selecting both forward&reverse cards and using the Edit>Reposition option in the Browse screen.

    Thanks Damien, I sorted the cards by the date created (so that the original order would not be lost) and re-positioned the cards as per your instructions.
