order decks alphabetically

Postby tsttm » Mon Jan 31, 2011 6:30 pm

Hi,

Unless I'm missing something, I don't see a way to order my decks alphabetically. I know I can manually arrange the deck orders when I click 'edit'..but I'm having so many decks, that it's tedious to do so. Perhaps also because I have so many decks, that I dont' like to search through them and prefer to have this listed alphabetically.

Is tehre a way to do so?

thanks.

I don't have an auto-sort for decks. You'll just have to manually re-order. Ordering alphabetically is on my list of possible updates, but it's very low priority, as most people can do this easily manually.

ok, thanks. Just wondering, it's not a major problem ordering manually. But at some point will be good.

Well this helped, I didn't even know you could organize them.

if not the option to sort alphabetically, perhaps a search string at the top to quickly get to my desired deck.

I can understand these may not be a priority..but it also seems like a basic option. When you start to have upwards of 20-30 decks, searching through the list is a little annoying.

Thanks though for keeping an eye on these forums and continually providing updates/upgrades! ;)

First off, manually ordering 20-30 decks should only take a couple minutes, I'd think. (Not ideal though, I know.) Secondly, how about creating folders and putting decks in them to help organize. You might be able to find decks quicker this way. To add a folder, tap + then "New Folder".

I really hope developer of this app adding "reorder alphatical" function to next update. I have a deck with more than 3000 flashcards. I cannot reorder it manually.

Shawn, are you talking about reordering cards within a deck? I'm not sure why you'd want to alphabetize your cards, but you can do this if you export your deck to your PC, put in a spreadsheet or order there.

I hope it is not bad manners to resurrect such an old thread, but I note that I can't manually reorder cards or decks on the iOS version of the app. This might be because my iPad mini 3 is obsolete and not updatable to the most recent OS version. Android works fine. Still, some type of automatic sort capability would be though not a high priority.

Hi tanjent. The secret: at bottom-left of "Cards" screen, tap "List", then Order By "Card Order". You can now tap "Edit" and reorder cards.
