They all changed to the 'default' rule. This rule is used when
for some reason the original stack rules can't be loaded due to
data corruption. Rather than crashing, it resets the rule.
Hmm, difficult to know why this would have happened. If you
notice anything about how it happens, please let me know.
Were those stacks being synced?
It looks like you are just using smart stacks to collect
together multiple stacks. A better approach may be to use a Group.
But an even better way may be for us to add a new type of stack,
which is like aliases to notes. The original notes stay in their
stacks, but you can make a new 'list' of any notes from any

=> I do, when I want to list certain individual stacks together under the same "header".

=> well, isn't this the rationale behind the smart stacks anyway? That's at least how I use them : combining the new vocabulary session with the previous one for a shuffled studying session. If this could be extended to individual notes, extending the "alias" rationale to that level, why not?
well, I'm just uploading the images there, it's an image hosting site, that's what it does.
The server here apparently neither lets me upload the images nor post the reply. That's why I had to create a new user name and make a new post...
First of all, my old smart stacks have all be transformed to normal stacks, deleting the rules [screenshot 1 : everything above the LEVEL 2 up to stack 144].
Secondly, all my new smart stacks, after having reformatted them manually, still have the smart stack icon in the sidebar, but the rules are erased AGAIN and reset to default.
Thirdly, when I try to create a new smart stack, I don't have the same rule options anymore, especially the one I used to have "stack - matches - "number", which means I can't use smart stacks anymore. [screenshot 3]
I very much like this app, but I have to admit this continuously having to reformat my rules are becoming a bit of a pain…
=> Maybe's there's a way to export separately the rules of the smart stacks, so I can reapply them when something goes wrong. I have the impression that it occurs when there's an update for the program, but I'm not sure...
thanks for putting that back in.
I don't know whether my usage is uncommon. I mean, I use both : I use groups and subgroups in order to group together big entities, stacks for individual lessons (that are the numbered files) and smart groups when I want to study the flashcard of one, two, three or more manually selected lessons.
How could I do this otherwise?
although it had been stated this issue would be resolved in the next bug release, having downloaded the latest version, I see it still remains as it was. There is no more option "stack matches".
This is very annoying...
