Let me see if I can get a screenshot.
Thank you, that is true, I just verified.

But even where it has done indexing it still has 'searching for..' progress for each search term, and it is far from immediate. So it is a little mysterious as to what it is indexing, and why.

Maybe it just takes something that normally would take a minute without an index and with an index it goes 5-10x faster, which would be a good tradeoff.

I downloaded another book and waited for a couple of minutes before opening it to search. It still ran through indexing progress. So it seems like a just in time thing and not something that happens just by downloading.

I had downloaded the Bible Encyclopedia to the HDX 2013 and it took DAYS to index. It shows a yellow bar across the top when you search to see how far it has indexed.

Plus, the HDX 2013 does not recognize it as a dictionary. I uninstalled it.

It works fine as a dictionary on the PW 2013 and PW 2012 and appears to have indexed much faster on those devices.

I think that feature may be coming. Why else give us indexing if not for dictionaries.

It's a mystery that is for sure! I bet it's a feature not yet implemented. We'll probably see more after Christmas.

Thanks for all the replies. I did as Harry suggested and reset the whole thing to factory settings. All of the other suggestions were great and I tried them all but to no avail. I now have 5 books and one CD worth of music on there and no problems! I will add things a little at a time and see if anything happens. I never side loaded books, but I did download them all in a very short period of time. Thanks!!

Sometimes a factory reset fixes everything.
