Hello, I'm French and I apologize in advance if the subject has already been opened.
My problem is that I use anki for my medical lessons, and I would like the cards to appear in the order of creation. Indeed there is a chronology in these lessons: Definition of the disease, clinical examination, paraclinic, treatments, follow-up. If I relearn them in disorder, all the logic of learning is disjointed. On the Ankidroid vesion I managed perfectly (relearning on Preview cards), but on the version Anki Mac I do not have this feature.
Nb: I have the new version of anki and my mac is well updated.

    Hi Ran,

    There is a Preview button in the browse screen, or you can use the Preview option in the Custom Study screen.

    Yes, I have this button on my cellphone but in my Mac there is no way to classify them, even on Preview...
    Is there any add-on I can download to have this setting?

    You can ctrl+click on the columns to reveal the "Created" column, then sort on that column to view cards in the order you originally added them.
