I just started using LingQ like a week ago and I’m still figuring out some basic stuff.
I sometimes have the problem, that when I am doing a story at LingQ I by mistake click on the arrow forwarding me to the next page of it.
The main issue with this is, that all the blue words become white and therefore “known”.
I know, that I can still go back and click on the white words to mark them as unknown, but I really love the feeling of looking at all the blue words and then turning them into white or orange ones step by step during the process of learning + I feel like missing out one or two unknown words, when they’re all white already.
Is there something like a “redo” button which I was just unable to find yet?
Or maybe simply another method to reset a specific page (make it like you saw it for the first time again) in a story at LingQ?
Thanks for your help!
Paging lessons automatically moves all remaining blue words on that page to known. We assume you have created LingQs for all unknown words before paging. If you do want to read the whole text, you can choose the Full Text option to see the full lesson at once without removing blue words.
Automatic removal of blue words can be turned off in the Settings for the Reader. Just click the gear icon in the top right corner of the Reader. The “Move words to known” option is the one to turn off. However, this just means that when you click the complete Lesson option on the last page, all your blue words for the whole lesson will be moved to known. There is no reason to keep blue words. The idea is that you either need to learn them or they are known. (or you can ignore words).
Having said that, you can click on all white words to make them blue again and create LingQs for them. So, if you are reading, and come across a word you incorrectly marked as known or ignored, just click on it to make it blue.
Finally, you can reset your language in your Language Settings - Login - LingQ
Hope this helps!
