Version:            (using Devel)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

This change request was recently submitted to the Kubuntu bug tracker here: https://launchpad.net/bugs/313596 I am forwarding it on here so that it can be dealt with properly upstream.

To shamelessly quote the downstream bug verbatim:
"When you hit "reveal word" the anagram is revealed but it is unclear what the next step is to obtain a new word. Hitting the Enter key doesn't do anything and hitting "reveal word" doesn't do anything either. I might suggest either making "reveal word" greyed out or replaced "reveal word" with "next" once pressed."

I would just personally remove the "reveal word" once pressed as it does not make sense to use that action again. Graying out is hard to imagine for me since the blackboard and text already gray. :-)

Turning that into "next" would be a duplication (and hence confusion IMO) about using one action in two different ways since there is already the next button.

Should be a junior task.
