Create Lingqs

There is a little problem. When I want to create a link containing more then one word and there is a line break, the lingq is created without the space in between the word at the end of the line and the word on the start of the next line. Which makes the so created lingq unuseable.

I have noticed this too in some imported texts. It is on our list of bugs to fix. Thanks for reporting it.

@JayNo - If you come across these phrases, you can always edit the term itself by opening up the LingQ widget and clicking the little pencil icon next to the term. Simply add a space and you should be good to go :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot Alex :slight_smile:

Is this something that only happens in imported lessons? On which browser? Does it happen every time you create an overlapping phrase? I can’t seem to make it happen. I am on Firefox and Chrome.

Sorry for not replying earlier, I’ve been a little busy.

This happens only in imported Lessons. And I think it just happens to texts copied from pdf. I am using Firefox.

The imported lesson also keeps all the line breaks from the PDF-file even though only the ones who end the paragraph would be important. (The last point is no Lingq problem, I guess, but a problem with my PDF reader.)

I hope that’ll help.

Ah, that would make sense. Since the issue is in the formatting of the PDF file, you might be best off pasting it into a text editor then manually adjusting the text to remove these extra line breaks.

It depends on the text itself, but you may be able to remove these by using the “Replace” function in Word, etc.
