Studying ALL cards from a deck in the original order AFTER studying it many times

Hello all,

I studied a pharmacology deck consisting of 70 cards/deck once in the morning, and another time in the evening (this time using filtered deck > order added). When I tried reviewing it again this morning, only 17 cards showed up when I tried studying via filter deck.

My goal was to study ALL 70 cards in the same ORDER as I created them. I understanding that by creating a custom "REVIEW AHEAD" study session, one can review ALL cards from a deck. However, when I do so the 70 cards are split into new cards and review cards – this means that the original sequence is not preserved. Is there a way to do it so that ALL 70 cards either in the review or new category?

Thanks in advance :)

    I don't recommend using the same order each time, as it makes it easier to remember things based on the order. But if you want that, you can modify the sort order of the filtered deck to show cards in the order they were created for example.

    Thanks for your help.

    I understand that you can do so via filtered deck. However, my concern is
    that every time I create a filtered deck, only 20 out of the 70 cards are
    funnelled into the filter deck. Is there a way to study all 70 cards while
    preserving the original order?

    Thanks :)

    Hi Darren,
    I'm running into the same problem. How did you solve it, I tried reading the anki manual but didn't find the solution.
