Hide dictionaries from home screen

Like the title said, I'm wondering if there is anyway to hide the dictionary collection from home screen in paperwhite. With the ads in place, I need every single space I could get.

On the Touch I put them in a Collection named Kindle Stuff along with the User Guide. I haven't tried that on the PW yet, but it might work.

It is by itself in a collection, but I do wanted to hide the whole collection. I saw in the screenshot of "Kindle Collection Manager" over the developer sub-forum that it had a toggle for "home visibility" which make me think is possible.

I would love to use the program but it seem a bit complicated (installing this and that) and I have questions whether it'll work on paperwhite or not, so I'll wait it out. Until then, I'm looking for a easier alternative (if I can).

Just create enough other collections to populate page 1 of the home screen and you won't see it.

My Dictionary Collection is on page 2 of the Home screen which I rarely visit.

This is actually one of the reason I wanted to hide it, for example, lets say the page holds 10 books (like k3), I would have ten books and the dictionary would be pushed to 2nd page. This I do not like. I do not hold many books in my Kindle (too much distraction), and like to keep the pages small.

It's minor, I agree, but if I can, I would wanted to hide it and make room for the books I'm actually going to read.
