limiting to a single response facet

For a stack with notes that have multiple facets, is there a easy way to have a slide show with a single prompt facet and a single response facet (ignoring all other facets)? In other words, I like to study with a single question (prompt facet) and a single answer (response facet)... ignoring all other facets. I then want to study the same material with a different prompt facet and a different response facet. As it stands, I often build multiple stacks with two facets of overlapping material... which is not elegant.

Here is an example note for a stack of German nouns:
Facet 1 = Jahr
Facet 2 = das Jahr
Facet 3 = the year
Facet 4 = Das Jahr geht zu Ende
Facet 5 = The year is ending)
Facet 6 = Das ____ geht zu Ende.
For this example, I'd like to do a slide show with Prompt: Facet 1 / Answer: Facet 2. Then do a slideshow with Prompt: Facet 3/ Response: Facet 2. Then Prompt: Facet 4 / Response: Facet 5. You get the idea. I apologize it this is already easily done. Thanks.

    Please note: My experience is from using Mental Case. I'm about to update to Studies... if Studies already solves this issue, please let me know.

    In both apps, you should be able to do this. Just create a custom slideshow. Then choose the prompt and response facets that you wish to use, and start the slideshow.

    Let me know if this isn't clear.

    Kind regards,

    Drew, This isn't working for me. In Studies, I'm using a stack with every note having 4 facets. In "Custom Slide Show", I can select the prompt facet I prefer no problem. When I try to choose my response facet (first or second or third remaining facet), I still get all three remaining facets as responses in the slide show. Is the only way to do this is to select "exclude from study sessions" and "apply note settings to other notes in the stack" for the two facets I don't want to study?

    Hmm, that may be a bug. I'll look into it and let you know.

    Kind regards,
