Anki card distribution increase, certain cards are too close together


Problem: I put in a set of cards that had the same answers and they showed up too close together.

Explanation: In medical terminology I have to learn suffixes and which one's make nouns, adjectives, or Diminutives. When 20 cards right next to each other have the same answer, one does not learn if one does not have to try to remember the information. example:
Front: -al
Back: noun

Front: -esis
Back: noun

... etc

Have you tried shuffling them? Seriously though, you haven't given enough detail for anyone to help you, maybe show some code...

Sorry I did not know there was a way to shuffle the cards. I actually had to make a new profile, back up the cards, then load up the cards on the profile; then I proceeded to use the reposition thing in browse. I had to make a new profile for the deck because browse does not allow the shuffling cards that have been reviewed at least once when studying. I was not sure what other information to provide, sorry. (Took me nearly two hours before I thought of making a new profile)

Oh, I kind of skipped over the title. I didn't realize you were talking about a specific flash card software called anki. Although, I guess this post doesn't really belong in the programming forum (I thought you were creating a flash card program).

It looks like you can change the order in the Decks/options screen.
