What happened to the brief explanations before the lessons?

This probably happened a while ago, but I didn't notice until now. What happened to the explanations before some of the lessons? Especially with verb conjugations and grammar, it would be nice to have some explanation of what's going on. It doesn't have to be a lot, just the definition of a modal verb and how they are supposed to be conjugated. That way I don't have to Google around trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing.

It's hidden, so when you click on a lesson there should be a Tips and Notes + ˝button˝ on the top right side.

There are two versions of the skill summary page right now, the old one and a new one that's being tested. The "Tips and Notes" information is still present in both formats, but with the newer version it's hidden until a button (conveniently called "Tips and Notes") is pressed. Most Spanish skills never had any tips or notes associated with them to begin with, so you will only see them (or the button to reveal them) in the handful of skills that have them.

I see the button in the top right. Maybe it is there for only certain people?
