Hello, I have a bunch of cards that I had unsuspended to study, but since I am moving onto a new unit, I want to resuspend them. However, I don't want to suspend cards that are siblings of other cards I have already seen/studied as I would like to still learn those to gain a better grasp of the cards I have already studied/seen before. I am having trouble figuring out how to do this after looking online and on the manual.

I can easily grab all the cards with "is:new -is:suspended" so that I can resuspend them, but I have no way I can figure out to also do something like "does not have a sibling that (is:due or is:learn or is:review or is:buried)" so I don't suspend the relevant siblings... (or so I can re-unsuspend them after suspending all of the is:new -is:suspended cards in general.

Thank you for the help.

    Tags affect all cards of a note, so you can tag the due/learn/etc cards, then exclude that tag from the first search.
