Hi Peter

Hi 

I have several learning projects in Mnemosyne ver 2.6.1 on Macbook air OS 12.4. 

Mnemosyne has been very stable for more than three years. I have avoided upgrading since versjon 2.6.1 does all I need. I do not synch to Android or the systems. 

My main learning project now is French language where I had approx ~ 41 500 cards this morning. I have over the years systematically analysed the cards with with the lowest Easiness and grades in order to modify them or add supplementary cards (typically Cloze deletion) to build a broader competence base or consolidate the difficult topics. As a tool to this end I have used Mnemosyne «Browse card» functionality, added tags and modified or added new cards where needed.

Today I decided to tidy up the tags, since over the years I have created far too many. I again used Mnemosyne «Browse card» functionality, deleted and renamed tags. 

Sometimes when I do this it may happen that cards remain without a tag, but they are easily picked up from «untagged»

After my housekeeping I saw that the number of items had dropped to ~38 00, and I am unable to find the missing 3 000 cards. I tried to save base with new name, and go back to what I opened this morning base is still only ~38 000. 

Any ideas what I have don wrong or how I can  get back the missing cards?


Best regards

Hi Henrik, 

I think that what's happening is the following: in the past, you asked Mnemosyne to only activate cards with certain tags. If you now deleted one of these tags, Mnemosyne will no longer show the cards that used to have this tag. If you go to 'activate cards' and also activate the 'untagged' cards, they will in all likelihood show up again.

Cheers,

Peter
