Learn Chinese in China

filtered decks and the alternatives thereto


Recommended Posts

Let's say you have a note type in Anki with multiple card types (e.g. a note type for words, which generates separate cards for recognition and writing). When you create new notes Anki spits out all cards into the same deck. Let's say you don't want to study these different types of cards in the same session, or you want to study these card types in different ways (e.g. learn the most recently added new recognition cards first, while learning new writing cards in the order they were created).


Are filtered decks the most nimble way to achieve this? I've previously just manually suspended and resorted cards in the browser, which definitely adds friction to the card creation process.

When editing the card type, there is an option "deck override" which can automatically put cards of that type into a deck, regardless of where you were when you created the note (and where all the other cards of that note will be placed).


Here is a screenshot to help you find the option on the edit card types page:
