Kindle DX dictionary in pdf

Have anyone used the dictionary in a dpf document in Kindle? If you have, does it work well?

Thanks.

You can't use the dictionary in a PDF. About the only thing that works in PDF is search.

That's a major issue IMO. I can't believe the dictionary features are disabled in PDFs.

It's not a major issue for me. When I'm reading a PDF I just type in the word that I want to look up in the dictionary.

Still a major usability flaw compared to other formats. Not being able to do almost *anything* within a page of a PDF shows how immature the support still is.
