I've been using LingQ for a long time, and it's been a while since you made the change that arrow keys jump to the next/previous word of the same colour, and if I want to go from a blue word to a yellow word (or vice versa), I have to press the shift key in addition to the arrow key.
Even though I got used to it, I still find this behaviour highly inconvenient, since I always go through the texts word by word, either creating a lingq for an unknown word or reading the hint of a lingq for a yellow word (since this is what lingqs are for; if I know the meaning of a lingq, I simply mark it as known). This way I have to consciously pay attention to the colour of the next word in order not to jump half a paragraph ahead. It would be highly appreciated if there was an option to disable this shift-dichotomy altogether.
However, what is even more annoying is that when I select a hint from a list of translations for a blue word and press enter to save it, the "cursor" jumps to the next blue word. I often read texts where blue words are relatively scarce. Any time I add a hint, the "cursor" jumps literally two paragraphs ahead, and having to navigate back to where I was in order to read the hints for yellow words in between is time consuming and annoying.
I understand that some users may first want to go through all blue words and then read the text as a whole, but I (and probably thousands of other users as well) like to read the whole text first. Adding an option to always jump (for any keyboard action) to the next highlighted word (irrespective of its colour) would improve my experience of using LingQ tremendously.
Thank you in advance for an answer. Any feedback is appreciated.
