To fix (naosu) level 7 kanjii not correct?

My phone refuses to accept or acknowledge what wanikani taught at level 7 for なおす
It insists on 直す
Furthermore even jisho.org agrees and the n5 group I’m in also uses this
Please explain what is happening here thanks

Is the kanji different for you? Instead of an L shape on the left side, is it more like just a __ on the bottom? That’s a Chinese font. The L shape one is Japanese. There are a bunch of slight differences between Japanese and Chinese versions of characters that can crop up in kanji. You can usually force a device to display Japanese fonts, but it will depend on the specifics for you.

Another fix would be to add Japanese to your list of language (no need to change it to be the main one, just add it to the list). If you do that, the phone should always display the Japanese fonts instead of Chinese when the text doesn’t specify which it should be.
