You have two ways to build personalized sets.

If you leave Asahi Kanji in the middle of a Multiple Choice test, you will be able to continue it anytime later where you have left it (same progress, same score), even in the case the app has been killed by the system.

The present Writing drill has to behave differently because it includes a button to mark kanji as "known".
Interrupted drills have to be restarted to allow for the modified number of kanji to test.

   About stroke order

According to the Wikipedia page on stroke order
the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology lets editors freely prescribe a character's stroke order, which all should "follow commonsensical orders which are widely accepted in the society".

Please read the general guidelines on the Wikipedia page and notice the repeated use of the phrase "usually written".
Some Japanese people have forgotten what they have been taught at school in their youth and are not so sure about the "correct" order, so do not overemphasize this order.

Handwriting recognition software generally relies on stroke order and must allow some variants.

Please also note that there are different rules and standards concerning stroke order in different countries.
