Chinese (from English): lost the ability to type in translations in Chinese
Recently, using either the app (iOS) or the website, I have lost the ability to type translations from English to Chinese (Mandarin). I used to have the option to either select the characters from a pick list or type directly (type in Pinyin and enter the returned characters).
Is this a general problem, change in the application itself, or a problem isolated to my account?
Typing on the website (the 'use keyboard' button) is still working for me. Can you not type English translations either?
Someone else has recently complained about the same thing, so I don't think you are unique.
It might be an A/B-test; it would be interesting to know whether you lack the typing option in all courses, or whether it is confined to Chinese.
