Hello everyone! And sorry beforehand for my English
I’m aware that similar topic was discussed before, and some people explained why this is a thing (e.g. https://community.wanikani.com/t/when-learning-single-kanji-vocab-words/2941). But regardless I’d like to give my own 2 cents on the matter.
No matter how I look at it, but learning same entry twice seem as a waste of time. So why not make some new kanji sub-type which will just show that this particular kanji can double as vocab? For example If kanji color is pink and vocab is violet, maybe just color code entry as pink+violet? I think this should make clear that this particular kanji can be used as vocab word and there will be no need to repeat it in vocab section later.
