No Search function?

Hello,

I am a newcomer in the Reader world, with an Odyssey. I am extremely surprised apparently not being able to find a search function to look for a word in the text.
Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

V.

There's no search function in the Gen3, Opus, or Orizon, so I'm not surprised there is non in the Odyssey either.

No, unfortunately there is no search function, neither within a book nor in the whole collection of books. Bookeen said they will consider adding it, but that's not their priority.

Too bad. Ordinary novels etc. are just fine without search function (at least for me), but technical texts and study books are quite another matter. There the search would be of great help. Imagine looking something up from e.g. API reference.

Agreed. I hope they change their mind.
