Thanks for any suggestions.

Answer

  • you can use Mercy on the branch that you want to use less (e.g. leave only 2-3 items per day to be able to focus on other branches)
  • you can use Spread priorities to give the less important branch low priorities or you can up-prioritize other branches, those that are more important today (remember to use auto-sort and auto-postpone to let priorities take effect). For example, if English makes up 33% of your collection and you want to mostly drill English, you could spread its priorities in 0-40% range. Or, if you do not want to see the branch X much, and it takes 20% of your collection, you could spread its priorities in the range above 75-80% up to 100%.
