This really should be further examined. In my mobile devices I can select long sentences, while in the computer I’m only allowed to select short ones (max 9 words, I guess, which is not a lot for German).
Long sentences are really important, especially for languages in which conjunctions/connectors change the sentence structure.
It would be great if the Lingq team could take a look on that. It’s probably not too uncanny of a subject, since the function is already possible on mobile.
Thanks and good studies!

I agree with you. I hope LingQ could help us with this funcionability, It will help us a lot.
I can’t promise anything, but I’ll check with our team if that’s something we have in plans for the upcoming update.
Thanks Zoran, I bet all of us, German students would benefit a lot from it.
And I guess there are other languages that would as well.,
FYI on mobile devices, like my motorolla phone and samsung tablet android I can select strings of words longer than 9. Actually as long as you want as long as it is not broken by a paragraph break or whatever @zoran

Hi. Thanks John.
Yep, as I mentioned in my post, the same happens on my Samsung S9 and my Lenovo Tablet Tab 4. It seems to be a perk of the app, which doesn’t not work on the web version.
I find the web version a better studying platform, however. So I would like to see the feature implemented in there, if possible.
Yeah I’m with you, I tend to use the web version more. as well The concept is amazing with this platform but the downsides are the aesthetics and the smooth functionality.
I’m learning some German myself, having fun with it. At least be thankful you don’t have a Xiami Phone, you can’t create any new phrase selections whatsoever because of some kind.
Hahaha I get that. Sounds painful.
I’ve noticed my country is displayed as Germany, but I only here. I’m not German.
German is precisely what I’m studying. And I can say with 100% certainty that in a language that has splittable verbs which are half in the beginning and half at the very end of the sentence, this becomes a must if you want things to make sense.
Of course, that’s not what will keep anyone from learning, but it does pose some unnecessary bumps on the way.
Hi Zoran. Any news on this?
Thanks a lot and greeting to the entire team’s great work.!
Russian learners as well. This is a challenge to reading more complex literature (really just medium complexity) with run on sentences. Also, some other highlighting scheme for longer selects would be nice (underline? selectable highlight color? Curly braces?) as I used to use this for capturing idioms but I end up removing it as soon as possible as it slows reading quite a bit.
Yes, I’ve always found this limitation odd
I have nothing I am afraid. Any eventual change won’t happen before update to LingQ 5.0
Yes, I gave up on this because I use the computer for studying and I’m learning German. Many times I’ve found myself wanted to select longer sentences but couldn’t. Well, I guess now I know why.
It’s just another limitation to live with.
Indeed, all of that would be great. Great ideas.
But for now I’d be happy enough with the topic of this post, which envolves a a practical problem and allows the development to focus in one specific request.
Alright. Thanks for the heads up
