When will tips and notes return to Spanish from English?

In the Spanish from English tree, out of 113 skills, there are 9 with tips and notes and so 104 without. (I am ignoring idioms and flirting.)

In the German from English tree, out of 121 skills there are 13 that do NOT have tips and notes. So 108 skills do.

French from English was harder to count since there are more of both kinds. But I got 35 out of 96 without, so 61 have tips and notes.

Numbers come from duome.eu.

From various discussions I gather that the old Spanish from English tree had many more than the current tree. Does anyone know if this is being worked on?

Do you know what?

The old German-Spanish tree (64 skills, 319 lessons) has "tips and notes" available only for one skill (Imperfekt) on the web portal/duome!!

I heard in another thread that a tree update might be shortly coming (or is already being A/B tested).

I am really glad that I learned Portuguese as my 1st Romance language on Duolingo first.

Hopefully I will not need any Spanish grammar tips anymore after two years of Portuguese when I will be starting to learn Spanish in the next ~1-3 years...

If those Spanish grammar explanations are not enough for you, you can also try - besides external other resources - www.lingvist.com:
It has a popup grammar panel within the exercises; so this will be a great application when you plan to do Spanish reviews.

I had used Lingvist end of last year to "learn" my first 1000 Spanish words.

Thank you. I have found

https://studyspanish.com/grammar

very helpful. They sell their course for a fee, but the grammar pages are free. They are concise and seem to cover a lot. There are others, but seem less orgainized (lawless spanish, for example). I will check out lingvist, but one advantage of the link I sent is that you don't even have to sign up to use it.

You have to use the IOS app: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/28102715$from_email=comment&comment_id=28130912

I had counted only 13 "tips and notes" on the old EN-SP tree.
Definitely not that much more.

Does anyone know if this is being worked on?

Only course moderators and contributors can tell this if and when they will be extending the HTML notes for the website.

If I should guess: There is a lot of work there to go through the user reports for the new tree.
