So I read the manual here: http://www.macflashcards.com/iphonemanual
and hopefully it's just something simple I am missing but I can't figure out how to review cards on my iPad. I purchased MC and when I tapped on the getting started case and then the play button at the top it worked. However when I tried that with the other default cases and even the getting started case again the study slideshow options were all greyed out.

So just how do I start to review my cards?? I've tried tapping, dragging, etc but nothing is working- help- please.

    Are all the options grayed out? After you select a case, you need the last option in the play menu, which is 'Notes in Selected Case', or something like that.

    Choose case, and then in study menu, 'All Notes in Selected Case'.

    Thanks Drew, Ayeshaz I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one ^^' Yes looking at it now all the options are greyed out except for "All Notes in Selected Case" those two options with the sliders are on. I tried turning them off and on with no luck. My ipad syncs with a Mac (itunes, etc) but I don't want to use my mac at all with Mental Case. Right now I'm downloading and installing the mac version to see if I can get it to sync and then unsync/link MC with my mac [sigh]

    To have the other options available, you have to turn on the learning scheduling for your cases. In the library, tap Edit, and then tap a blue button. Turn on the scheduling switch.

    I created files in a new case and I can edit their slideshow options but the ones that came as a default I can't edit their schedule with my iPad. Now that my cards are created it isn't a problem (just slightly strange seeing so many cards due- guess I should just delete them) ^^' Anyway, thanks for the help!

    Yes, the sample data is imported in an unusual way, which explains why you can't edit that. If you don't need it, just delete it.

    Kind regards,
    Drew
