scheduling reversible notes

If I have a stack of notes, all with two facets, set up using the Reversible Note template, and all facets set as eligible for prompt, I am curious if I need to take care with the Prompt setting for Custom Slideshow of cards due from All Notes.

Let's say on one of the cards, the text of the first facet is "Azul" and the text of the second facet is "Blue".

So simply viewing it in the stack shows two facets in this order : Azul / Blue.

According to you, each facet is now graded and scheduled independently as a prompt with the new IOS Mental Case 2. So suppose when I am prompted with Blue, I always remember the answer is "Azul". But when I am prompted with "Azul", I keep getting it wrong. This means that the scheduling should be testing me with Azul as the prompt much more frequently than as with "Blue" as the prompt, until I finally learn it and start getting it correct more often.

Now, if I have chosen in the settings for the Custom Slideshow to set the Prompt setting at "First Eligible Facet", when it schedules the prompt to be "Azul" (because it is this prompt that I keep missing), is the Prompt setting going to consider the "First Eligible Facet" to be
"Azul"? Or is this setting going to screw things up by always considering the "First Eligible Facet" to be the first facet keyed (in this case, Blue.)?

In short, I just want to make sure that I can use the Custom Slideshow without losing the advantage of getting the second facet presented to me as the prompt more often if am getting it wrong more often when it is the prompt.

The thing I like about Custom Slideshow is it lets me stop and then pick up again where I left off in the lesson before I move on to study more recently scheduled cards.

    The scheduling will take effect any time you use the due notes. If you start a custom slideshow and turn on due notes only, it will ignore the prompt setting and choose the appropriate order for the schedule.
