I paged by mistake, before I knew how LingQ worked, and all the words on the first few pages became marked as known.
But I don’t know those words, so I would like to reset those pages or the entire mini story, now that I understand how the system works.
I see that I can reset one word at a time by clicking them, but that’s a bit cumbersome to do for several pages. How can I reset an entire page or an entire mini story in one click?
At the moment, it’s not possible to reset a complete page or a lesson.
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! Let me know if you have any other questions.
There’s really no need to set words back to blue. Just click on them as you read that page and create LingQs which removes them from Known. You will be caught back up in no time.
Hi Zoran, what you wrote about “resetting your language” really helped me, so thank you !!
