Apologies if this is phrased poorly due to unfamiliarity with the specific LingQ vocabulary. The problem I seem to be having is when I load a mini story in the iOS app, none of the words are blue, and this propagates back to the website, so if I load a mini story on iOS first, then load it up later on the website, it won’t have any blue words. If I just go to it for the first time on the website and only look at it on the site, it does have blue words that I can turn into LingQs. When the app does this, it makes it much harder to create LingQs because my eye isn’t drawn to new words. I’ve looked through the settings and I haven’t been able to find anything that addresses this; am I missing something?
Sounds like you have the Highlighting disabled on the app.
Go the the Settings > Reader and under Highlighting if it’s set to OFF, change to Standard.
Is this setting new? I am so happy I stumbled on your post. I know I asked for something like this a while back and to be honest I didn’t really expect it to happen. As a work around of sorts I was just marking everything known. But there were so many yellow words from all the studying I had done up until then I didn’t think it would ever end. This is so much nicer now.
Yeah, we added that feature with LingQ 5.0 release.
