Is there a way to turn off character writing for words? Since the same character appears in many words … it feels these are excessive.
One way to do this manually might be to have characters and word vocabulary in separate lists, with the writing review turned off just for the words. But as far as I can see that is not possible, the setting is global.
As an example, suppose I have nihao, haokan, haobuhao … “hao” is not a new character in each word, but for each word, writing it is practiced as intensively as if it were. Or so it seems.
The extreme example is reduplicated words: xiexie, renren. Skritter asks you to write the character twice.
In fact, the same applies to tones, as opposed to pronunciation.
