Maybe, there is my problem. I have to admit that I am not quite sure if I understand the dictionary management. According to the information from the settings menu my KT has 14 dictionaries installed. And actually if I open a book in a given language the respective dictionaries are accessed by the KT. Therefore, I guess that all that I can do by managing the dictionaries is to remove one or the other dictionary, and this I have no intention to do in the moment.

The full screen dictionary screen of my reader does not show any dotted underline, nor any arrow icon to the top left corner.

If I think about it, it seems to me that there a two kinds of logic involved. 1) When one points at a word on the screen the KT/Glo uses the correct dictionary based on the language information. 2) When offering dictionary access to the user the KT/Glo offers only those dictionaries the user has selected at a certain point.
So is the meaning of "installing dictionaries" "selecting some out of the actually installed dictionaries for user-access"? Is this the function of the dictionary management? Could anybody please confirm this? If this is the case I have to use of the dictionary management, something I cannot do since at the moment Wifi access is difficult for me.
