Work with touch screen

Is anybody able to get this to work with a touch screen? I can click on an individual word to create a link, but when I try and select multiple words it is selecting the text but link isn’t registering it in the program. it works with a touch pad, but not a touch screen. Can anybody help?

What device are you using? Are you on app or web version?

Hi, sorry for the delay. It is a microsoft surface (11? I think, new one) and using the web version (there’s no windows app?).

I have encountered the same issue on my laptop with touchscreen, on the browser version of LingQ. Individual words can be LingQed, but trying to drag over several words results in a text selection, rather than a LingQed phrase. It’s always been my impression that it’s to do with Windows and how it handles touch input - but perhaps there is some way of making it work on LingQ’s part?

If you have a keyboard, one solution is to tap the first word (dismiss the popup/widget if it’s in the way), then hold shift and tap the final word of the phrase.

Screenshot to show what it looks like (on my touchscreen).

Fabbol below also describes the same problem. With a useful screenshot!

Is this not being answered? I have the exact same problem on my HP Pavilion touch. I have a separate problem accessing highlighted texts, so I’ll raise that in another post.

I’ll ask our team what’s the status here. Thanks.
