Pleco: Certain Example Sentences Can't Be Selected As Flashcards?

Recommended Posts



Would like to use some of these example sentences (in blue) from GF and LAC as flashcards, but these particular example sentences don't have a "+" to do so like other dictionaries.


Just searched another word randomly “逸”. There are no "+" with these example sentences either. Is this a peculiarity with the GF dictionary example sentences? Do I have some option left unchecked somewhere?

We don't offer a flashcard button for those because they don't have any English translations and so you'd have to fill in pretty much the whole thing yourself. But if you highlight the whole sentence (tap on the first character and long-press the |-> button to expand the selection to the whole thing) and then tap on the + button, it should offer to create a custom flashcard and let you fill in your own English on that screen.
