When I review vocab in list form and click on the level 5 check mark, it only updates the known word count every once in a while. I have also tried using the ‘make known’ option in the ‘more actions’ dropdown, but this doesn’t work consistently either. I think it does update the count when it’s the first word to be made known on that page, but after that it stops working.
A word becomes known when it moves from status 3 to status 4. The green check only means it will no longer be added to your Daily LingQs. So if a word was status 4 already, and you checkmark it, that won’t affect the Known words counter.
Thanks that makes sense.
