hierarchy of cases and stacks - how much of a burden to Mental Case?

Does Mental Case struggle with a lot of cases and stacks, or with cases within cases?

Currently, I only study Spanish. The cases I created just evolved as I progressed. The cases categorize areas of study, such as "Vocabulary" or "Subjunctive". Within the main cases, I do on four occasions have cases again. But otherwise only stacks. But I have numerous stacks. I create them in advance in varying units of around 15 to 30 cards, depending on whether or not they are reversible or not. Then as I master what I have scheduled I'll go in an activate the stacks to the study schedule.

Am I creating a burden for mental case by creating so many stacks or cases?

    Hi Zeppo,

    I don't think you have anything to worry about at this time. As long as you can keep things ordered for yourself Mental Case will happily show you a lot of stacks!

    Ok. I just didn't want my management of cases and stacks to weigh on the iCloud sync.

    One other thing while on the topic of stacks and cases. When presenting the scheduled notes for the day, does it present them grouped by stack and or case, or does it mix everything scheduled together? If it doesn't lump them together, then I suppose it might benefit me to keep cards in larger stacks so that there is greater randomization in how they are presented.
