Question Dictionary Lookup

Hi.
Since I'm a newbie with Cybook, maybe I'm missing something, be patient

Here's the problem: I just can't make a lookup in the dictionaries I have on the cybook.
Highlighted a word (one I know it's in the dictionary) but always a 'no result' message.
???
thank you in advance

Fabio

What kind dictionary you have on Cybook? One of the free ones posted around here or you bought it?

It sounds like a problem in the dictionary. The fact that you can do a lookup shows that the Gen3 is recognising that a dictionary is present.

Update: I finally (maybe 100th try ) managed to find a word by a lookup.
I both have a demo of a dictionary (the one it worked) and one I bought (a thesaurus).
I'll try deleting the demo and see what happens.
Thank you
=)

mmmm

I was reading through the manual stored on the Cybook and tried a dictionary lookup . Moving back to the manual I find that the script on the following pages corrupted . Looks like the font had changed to " Symbols " ( If you know MSWord ) .

Hoping it's not going to happen again ....

Then it became interesting ......

I got stuck in menus - and no button press etc would release me from them .. there were 5 menus open on the screen ..... .

At least I was allowed to switch off .

Going back into the manual - all is fine - no problem !!!!!
