Dictionary: what version? can it be in firmware?

Hey,

I'm a new owner and want to get the dictionary working on my device. Is there a standard version? I noticed the sticky thread has two versions (and one rewrite). What one should I be using?

Can I get the dictionary to work from the device itself instead of using the SD card? I want to use the SD card for storage of books.. don't want to be pulling it in and out. I'd like to be able to hold 9 down instead of the patch for 0 (which I haven't had luck with anyways) so that I don't lose the function of holding 0 down.

I guess the best way would be to add it directly to the firmware.. Is there a way to do this?

Yes do this by modifying the autorun.js file.
Search for the text 'doHold0' to 'doHold9'.

Then reinstall the autorun.js file

What feature does this provide?

what version is the autorun.js with the key hold for? yours or the rewrite of the original? I couldn't get it to work with the 0.7 rewrite version.. it kept rebooting the reader

The doHold0 skips to the end of the document, I think.. it did something. Yesterday was the first day I got to play with the device, so I may be wrong. I'll check when I get home.

My apology, yes modify the 'patched' autorun.js I posted.

The patch specifically adds the hold button feature.

So I downloaded 0.7b (DictioLaunch07b_prs505.zip) off the first page, your autorun.js from the last page and overwrote the autorun.js.. it still runs as soon as I insert the card.

What have I done wrong?

That is the correct behavior. The only thing my hack does is allows you to launch the dictionary from a button. To reduce the amount of insert/re-insert of the SD card.

Once you're reading a "book" you can press and hold the "0" (in your case "9") button and it should launch the dictionary.

Oh, okay.

How do I exit the dictionary without removing the card?
Currently the typing in the dictionary stopped working on me, is this a known bug?
Can we add the dictionary to the image directly and bind to the key without an autorun?

By the way: all numbers have a hold function, 1 = start of book, 0 = end of book, 2 = 20% through book, 3 = 30% through book, etc
