Deleting lingq to import to anki

August 02 at 16:29

So I love lingq in general but struggle with some of the dictionary support.

I prefer switching the cards into anki where I can auto update the dictionary entries to match much better what I am looking for. (I use pleco and other chinese dictionaries. ) I don't want to stop and correct each entry in lingq as I am reading because I want to do it in bulk.

I am regularly exporting to anki, then I use the anki chinese support plugin(modified locally) to convert to the format of cards and def'n that I like.

I don't review in lingq but I love using it to consume content and mark words for me to review later.

The export process continues to grow to a larger size as I get more and more created. I was curious if anyone else that exports to anki(I assume since the option exists it isn't uncommon) deletes the lingq's afterwards so the export list doesn't keep growing.

Just curious how people long term manage using this tool to consume content but a different tool to review.

edit: The title is probably confusing. I definetly intend to keep using this tool, I just only use it to consume content not manage vocab.
