  1. This is great. But is there any way to include the “frequency” and “date” columns when exporting? I find it useful to know when I encountered a word and how many times I had to look it up. If that’s not possible now, please consider it a request for an upcoming feature!

    Thanks so much for this useful tool.

    • Thanks for your comment. For now you may export Vocabulary words to Excel file, which will include frequency and date columns.
      Please be noted that you may need Office installed on your computer first.
