I'm learning how to write chinese characters, but I haven't used anki for a while, and now I have 1000 cards that need to be reviewied. I'm doing it bit a bit, by setting reviewing cards max 40 per days.
The thing is I truly forgot most of the cards, thus choosing "again". After the card is "relearned" i have to choose, "Good" so the card reappear the following day.

Now I have noticed that theses cards do NOT appears the following day. It may be because I have a tons of forgot cards so the software is proritizing them over the card that I reviewed the last day?
But I would like to have it appears the following day. Otherwise I would forgot it again until next time it appears (and it may be a long time since i have 1000 cards) and create a cycle.

How could I manage to do that?

Thank you !

    You can use the filtered deck option to review cards in a different order than the default due order.

    Thank you for your answer !

    I tried several orders and found that "Increasing interval" seems to be the one I need to choose in order to achive my goal? May you confirm that please? Or oldest seen first?

    Increasing interval should accomplish what you want.

    Thank you but I just figured that choosing this option also add NEW cards whcih I never reviewed. How to prevent this to happen?

    Yes, that is how you would prevent new cards from being included.
