Changing initial order of cards
Mnemosyne by default displays the cards in the order they where added.
However there is no way of changing this order after the cards have been added. For example if you want to create a set of cards for someone you may want to control the order, so that the learner learns the basic first before going on to the more advanced stuff.
For example you may want to learn the regions of a country before learning the cities in the regions.
Possible solution may be to be able to drag the order of the cards via the card browser.

I have a deck that is already splitted into chapters, but trere are a lot of cards in each chapter. For some reason, all the "kanji" cards and all vocabulary cards go in two separate blocks inside a chapter. This is wrong because each vocabulary card should go after it's corresponding "kanji" parts. I would like to reorder these cards manually, if I could.
Voted. This would be also helpful if you wanted a newly added card to be not at the end but in another place on the cards list.
I too would like to see this feature made available. I make cards from various text sources and would like to have this ability so as to arrange my cards in the proper order I need them to be in. As of now I have to go through all the books at the same time, cross referencing each, extrapolate the questions, and then type them in according to the order I want. It would be much simpler if I could work my way through one book entering my questions in directly and then be able to arrange according to my needs.
Similar to this idea, because the goal is to change the "initial" order of the cards (basics first, the more advanced stuff later): https://mnemosyne.uservoice.com/forums/164265-general/suggestions/3053605-make-one-card-dependent-on-having-successfully-lea

Good point, but then the user needs to be aware of that.

I think a better solution would be to organize (or tag) the information in "chapters," and initially deactivate all chapters except the first. Then progressively activate the chapters in sequence as the early chapters are learned. This is how a user would go through the vocabulary of a foreign language textbook. It allows better control than depending on the order of the individual cards.
