So when you're reading an iBook made using iBooks Author, and you go to highlight something, you're able to use that as a study card along with a note of your own creation that you annotate with the highlight.

My problem is this: The first thing you see when you open the study cards is the highlighted text itself, not the note you've added with it. This I see as an oversight due to the fact that logically speaking, when you highlight something, you're not highlighting a question, you're highlighting an answer.

Is there any way to change what displays initially when you run the study card feature, either in iBooks Author when you're creating the iBook, or in iBooks itself?
