BeBook Neo, move dictionary window

So I managed to install some stardict dictionaries that work nicely with the BeBook Neo (wordnet, oxford, collaborative international).

The problem is that the pop-up window from the dictionary often covers the word that I want to look up. This means I have to change the font size until I find a setting where the word is on top of the page, look it up, and change back to the original setting. Not very intuitive ...

Is there a way to move the pop-up window in order to mark a word beneath it? Once the window appeared on top of the screen, but I don't know why and I can't replicate.

Mathias

There may be a better way, but what I do is select a word near the bottom of the visible part of the original book. The dictionary window moves itself to the top of the screen.

Thanks, that works! But surely there should be a proper way to do this ...

I also select some random word from the last line before the dictionary.
Really didn't bother to find an alternative since it's bound to need more than one click (or is it a jab?) which is a current clicking (jabbing) requirement for the snap-to top function...
