I have had a long discussion with the Anki support asking how I can make some of my existing cards reversible but I have still not been able to do exactly what I want.
I have an existing deck where I want to make some cards reversible. I followed the instructions in this clip on YouTube (they are a little outdated, the
+-button is replaced with a menu option
Add card type) but the result is that Anki wants to create a new card for every card in the deck, rather than what I want which is to create a reversed item for just the current card.
I would like to go through my deck and pick the cards I want to reverse (or something like that).
The notes I want to make reversible are heavily customized.
How do I make some of the cards in an existing deck reversible?
I'd be grateful for a step-by-step explanation together with some information about why I should perform each action. I want to understand the underlying mechanism.
