Sadly it doesn't work as addon's name suggests:
CARD creation time doesn't change at all. What's changed is the NOTE creation time.
But even in notes view in browser, with notes sorted in some (any) order, after applying the addon, the timestamps of notes change, but not in the sequence the notes are currently sorted in browser.
Please make the addon reset the CARD creation timestamps in the order they are currently shown in the Anki's browser (as the original 2.0 addon declares in its description).
That would make perfect sense because it would enable users to make filtered (custom study) decks where the order of showing cards would follow the predefined sequence (order by date added).
It's needed for some card types like Cloze Overlapper / Cloze (Hide All) / Cloze Anything and other similar addons whose generated cards need to be shown 1 by 1 in a strict sequence but these addons' card creation timestamps are not in the order required for their own best usage.
I've tried all kind of manipulations and add-ons and none were doing what I needed: exporting to .txt in the due order.
The cards were imported with AnkiGen and dated 1970 in the wrong order...
thanks for your contribution
I didn't quite understand what this would do with time, but it does what I wanted it to do: It doesn't increment the date for each card selected, it increments in ticks (not too sure whether they are ticks or seconds or quite what) on the same day so all cards selected have the same date but incremental times. Just what I needed. Thanks.
