          You can change this setting from the reader sidebar, within the AA tab. Or from the Web Reader menu: set Translations Replace in the Appearance Settings.

          Hope that helps. (Sorry for the change of style – I meant to change the default for new users and not existing ones like yourself, luckily it’s easy to change back :-)

          Ok thanks Steve, I appreciate it! I'm glad you are making it so people can customize it how they like. That's something a lot of these sites similar to this are missing.

            I’ll think about adding an option for this in future because it’s been suggested a couple of times, but I actually prefer the way it works now. Let me explain.

            If you click on a word or phrase, it means you don’t know what it means, or at least weren’t sure what it means. Therefore you should work on learning it in the “Learn” section, or if you made a mistake and accidentally clicked a word you already know, or it’s not useful to you, just delete it as soon as you encounter it in the “Learn” section.

            I don’t like the idea of an extra click to favourite each word as you are reading because one of the key motivations of the site is to make reading as distraction free as possible, adding only tools that help you understand the text and then get out of the way. This…
