After selecting "Create random query" from the header menu the vocabulary disappers.
Then all entries that match your current threshholds. are put into a list and shown in random order with the following dialog box.
In the area with the original expression there are some properties you can enable pageto give you some hints.
If you find a mistake with a query you can invoke the edit dialog immediately and correct it.
Each click on this button will show one more character of the solution to give you a little help.
Shows the complete solution in the "Translation" field.
Not implemented yet. Later version will take the content in the field translation and determine using a more or less smart algorithm if the answer was correct.
kvoctrain that you did not know the answer and that
the according grade must be lowered.
Click this button to tell
kvoctrain that you knew the answer
correctly. This entry is then removed from the "bad list".
Stop query mode and show vocabulary again.
Invoke options dialog.
In the right top corner you see two progress display that indicate the remaining time and the amount of queries to come.
The query of the current lesson is repeated until all its expressions are known. The amount of retries of the current lesson is shown below the progress indicator.
I regret to admit, but usually I don`t know the solution :-(. For that reason
Return key has special behaviour, which I found convenient:
Returnshows the complete solution (at the beginning the button
"Show more"is the default button) and makes
"Don`t know"the default button.
Returnthe second time will leave this dialog and tell
kvoctrainyou did not know the answer.
At the moment you must decide for your own, if you knew the answer or failed. Later versions may provide a more or less smart algorithm to make this decision from a string you entered.
If you knew the corrent answer, the grade is increase by one step. If you did not know it, the grade is reset to level 1.
This type of query works similar to the previous one. The solution is shown together with random other expressions and you have to choose "1 out of 5".
This dialog appears after starting the query of the verbs.
All tenses are queried that have definitions for conjugations. Of course you must know all of them for a successful result.
In this dialog the article of the noun is queried.
It is important to having selected the correct subtype in the entry dialog.
All adjectives that contain also comparison forms are shown. One word is chosen randomly and you must complete the remaining two.
The query for the above mentioned additional properties of your expression looks basically the same for all types.
You are prompted the expression and have to enter the according property.
Querying by "example" is a bit different since
kvoctrain takes the
expression and replaces it by some dots so this is mainly useful when your
expression is a single word.
