Wile you are reading your ebook, open your lcd control screen... one of your choices will be "look up word" (you may have to scroll the selections up or down to see it). You will get a control display with 4 direction buttons, a "lookup" button, a "keyboard" button and a "cancel" button. If you hit "keyboard" you can type a word in and look it up, or you can use the direction arrows to move the cursor within the book page (displayed as a heavy vertical bar) to the beginning of the word to lookup. The cursor moves slowly, so be patient with it.

I still wish to have the cursor movement wrap around the screen to save to the moving time. Let say, you are looking up a word in the last line on the screen, you should be able to press the up arrow on touch screen and the cursor will jump to the last line; instead of pressing the down arrow for , say, twenty two times.

Yep, the dictionary is pretty bad in many respects.
